Siree Raag, First Mehla:
Kot Kotee Meree Aarajaa Pavan Peean Apiaau ||
Chandh Sooraj Dhue Gufai Na Dhekhaa Supanai Saun Na Thaau ||
If I could live for millions and millions of years, with only air for my food and drink.
And if I lived in a cave and never saw either the sun or the moon, … Where dream filled sleep never could come again
Bhee Teree Keemat Naa Pavai Hu Kevadd Aakhaa Naau ||1||
Saachaa Nirankaar Nij Thaae ||
Even then I could not estimate Your Value. How can I describe the Greatness of Your Name? ||1||
The True Lord, the Formless One, You hold a place all your own.
Sun Sun Aakhan Aakha Naa Je Bhaavai Kare Tamaae ||1|| Rahaau ||
Kusaa KaTeeaa Vaar Vaar Peesan Peesaa Paae ||
Again and again I have heard of Your exellence. If it is pleasing to You, then create that longing within me. ||1||Pause||
If I was slashed and cut into pieces, over and over again, and put into the mill and ground into flour,
Agee Setee Jaaleeaa Bhasam Setee Ral Jaau ||
Pankhee Hoe Kai Je Bhavaa Sai Asamaanee Jaau ||
Burnt by fire and mixed with ashes -even then, I could not estimate Your Value. How can I describe the Greatness of Your Name? ||2||
If I was a bird, soaring and flying through hundreds of heavens, vanishing altogether from sight,
Nadharee Kisai Na Aavuoo Naa Kichh Peeaa Na Khaau ||
Bhee Teree Keemat Naa Pavai Hu Kevadd Aakhaa Naau ||3||
Neither eating nor drinking anything-even so, I could not estimate Your Value.
How can I describe the Greatness of Your Name? ||3||
Naanak Kaagadh Lakh Manaa Par Par Keechai Bhaau ||
Masoo Tot Na Aave’ee Lekhan Paun Chalaau ||
O Nanak, if I had hundreds of thousands of stacks of paper, and an unlimited supply of ink.
And a pen that moved like fury of wind
Embracing the love of the Lord … reading and rereading the content of those pages
Bhee Teree Keemat Naa Pavai Hu Kevadd Aakhaa Naau ||4||2||
Even then I could never truly appraise Your Worth, or tell of the Greatness of Your Name ||4||2||
