Aaae Anik Janam Bhram Saranee

ਜੈਤਸਰੀ ਮਹਲਾ ੫ ॥
Jaithasaree Mehalaa 5 ||

ਆਏ ਅਨਿਕ ਜਨਮ ਭ੍ਰਮਿ ਸਰਣੀ ॥
After wandering through so many incarnations,
I have come to Your Sanctuary.

ਉਧਰੁ ਦੇਹ ਅੰਧ ਕੂਪ ਤੇ ਲਾਵਹੁ ਅਪੁਨੀ ਚਰਣੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
Save me – lift my body up out of the deep,
dark pit of the world,
and attach me to Your feet. ||1||Pause||

ਗਿਆਨੁ ਧਿਆਨੁ ਕਿਛੁ ਕਰਮੁ ਨ ਜਾਨਾ ਨਾਹਿਨ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਕਰਣੀ ॥
I do not know anything about spiritual wisdom,
meditation or karma,
and my way of life is not clean and pure.

ਸਾਧਸੰਗਤਿ ਕੈ ਅੰਚਲਿ ਲਾਵਹੁ ਬਿਖਮ ਨਦੀ ਜਾਇ ਤਰਣੀ ॥੧॥
Please attach me to the hem of the robe
of the Saadh Sangat,
the Company of the Holy;
help me to cross over the terrible river. ||1||

ਸੁਖ ਸੰਪਤਿ ਮਾਇਆ ਰਸ ਮੀਠੇ ਇਹ ਨਹੀ ਮਨ ਮਹਿ ਧਰਣੀ ॥
Comforts, riches and the sweet pleasures of Maya –
do not implant these within your mind.

ਹਰਿ ਦਰਸਨ ਤ੍ਰਿਪਤਿ ਨਾਨਕ ਦਾਸ ਪਾਵਤ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮ ਰੰਗ ਆਭਰਣੀ ॥੨॥੮॥੧੨॥
Slave Nanak is satisfied and satiated by the
Blessed Vision of the Lord’s Darshan;
his only ornamentation is the
love of VaheGuru’s Name. ||2||8||12||
