Raag Svaiyay – Bhatt Nalh – Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji – Ang 1400
Svaiyay Mahalaa Chhota
Samarath guroo sir hath dhari-a-o.
Gur keenee kirpaa harinaam dee-ao,
Jis daykh charan aghan hara-o.
Nis baasur ayk samaan dhi-aan,
So naam sunay sut bhaan dara-o.
Bhan daas so aas jagatr guroo kee,
Paaras bhayt paras kara-o.
Raam Daas guroo har sat keeya-o,
Samarath guroo sir hath dhara-o.
Svaiyay, Fourth Mehla:
The All-Powerful Guru has placed His Hand upon my head.
The Guru has bestowed His Mercy and blessed me with the Lord’s Name.
Seeing the Lord’s Lotus Feet, my sins are washed away.
Night and day He meditates on the One Lord alone,
Hearing His Name, Yama (Death), the son of the sun, is scared.
Says the Guru’s slave, hope lies in the Guru of the world, Guru Amar Das;
He united Ram Das with the philosopher’s stone,
And so made Him to become the philosopher’s stone.
By God’s Grace, Ram Das is acclaimed as the True Guru;
The Hand of the All-Powerful Guru was placed upon His Head.
