Raag Bilaval – Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji – Ang 804
Author: Guru Arjan Dev Ji
Bilaaval Mehalaa 5:
Sagal manorath paa-ee-a-eh meetaa
Charan kamal si-o laa-ee-ai cheetaa
Hau balihaaree jo prabhoo dhi-aavat
Jalan bujhai har har gun gaavat
Safal janam hovat vadabhaagee
Saadh sang raameh liv laagee
Mat pat dhan sukh sehj anandaa
Ik nimakh na visaraho parmaanandaa
Har darshan kee man pi-aas ghanayree
Bhanat naanak saran prabh tayree
The Beloved fulfills every desire,
As the Lord’s lotus feet and the consciousness of the devotee become one.
I am a sacrifice for those who meditate on God.
Singing of Lord God’s excellences,
The burning passions are cooled. (Pause)
And by Great Good fortune this Birth can be fruitful —
Those who love God remain Absorbed in Divine Rapture.
Their minds are with the Lord, effortless bliss is their wealth.
This Supreme Rapture is forgotten not even for a moment.
For the Grace of God is their heart’s deep longing.
Nanak declares that his sanctuary is in God.
