jin sir sohan patteea maangee paae sandhoor |

Those heads adorned with braided hair, with their parts painted with vermillion

ਸੇ ਸਿਰ ਕਾਤੀ ਮੁੰਨੀਅਨਿੑ ਗਲ ਵਿਚਿ ਆਵੈ ਧੂੜਿ ॥
se sir kaatee muneeani gal vich aavai dhoorr |

those heads were shaved with scissors, and their throats were choked with dust.

ਮਹਲਾ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਹੋਦੀਆ ਹੁਣਿ ਬਹਣਿ ਨ ਮਿਲਨਿੑ ਹਦੂਰਿ ॥੧॥
mahalaa andar hodeea hun bahan na milani hadoor |1|

They lived in palatial mansions, but now, they cannot even sit near the palaces. ||1||

ਆਦੇਸੁ ਬਾਬਾ ਆਦੇਸੁ ॥
aades baabaa aades |

Hail to You, O Father Lord, Hail to You!

ਆਦਿ ਪੁਰਖ ਤੇਰਾ ਅੰਤੁ ਨ ਪਾਇਆ ਕਰਿ ਕਰਿ ਦੇਖਹਿ ਵੇਸ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
aad purakh teraa ant na paaeaa kar kar dekheh ves |1| rahaau |

O Primal Lord. Your limits are not known; You create, and create, and behold the scenes. ||1||Pause||

ਜਦਹੁ ਸੀਆ ਵੀਆਹੀਆ ਲਾੜੇ ਸੋਹਨਿ ਪਾਸਿ ॥
jadahu seea veeaaheea laarre sohan paas |

garee chhuhaare khaandeea maanani sejarreea |

They ate coconuts and dates, and rested comfortably upon their beds.

ਤਿਨੑ ਗਲਿ ਸਿਲਕਾ ਪਾਈਆ ਤੁਟਨਿੑ ਮੋਤਸਰੀਆ ॥੩॥

ਧਨੁ ਜੋਬਨੁ ਦੁਇ ਵੈਰੀ ਹੋਏ ਜਿਨੑੀ ਰਖੇ ਰੰਗੁ ਲਾਇ ॥

Their wealth and youthful beauty, which gave them so much pleasure, have now become their enemies.

ਦੂਤਾ ਨੋ ਫੁਰਮਾਇਆ ਲੈ ਚਲੇ ਪਤਿ ਗਵਾਇ ॥
dootaa no furamaaeaa lai chale pat gavaae |

The order was given to the soldiers, who dishonored them, and carried them away.

ਜੇ ਤਿਸੁ ਭਾਵੈ ਦੇ ਵਡਿਆਈ ਜੇ ਭਾਵੈ ਦੇਇ ਸਜਾਇ ॥੪॥
je tis bhaavai de vaddiaaee je bhaavai dee sajaae |4|

If it is pleasing to God's Will, He bestows greatness; if is pleases His Will, He bestows punishment. ||4||

ਅਗੋ ਦੇ ਜੇ ਚੇਤੀਐ ਤਾਂ ਕਾਇਤੁ ਮਿਲੈ ਸਜਾਇ ॥
ago de je cheteeai taan kaaeit milai sajaae |

If someone focuses on the Lord beforehand, then why should he be punished?

ਸਾਹਾਂ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਗਵਾਈਆ ਰੰਗਿ ਤਮਾਸੈ ਚਾਇ ॥
saahaan surat gavaaeea rang tamaasai chaae |

The kings had lost their higher consciousness, reveling in pleasure and sensuality.

ਚਉਕੇ ਵਿਣੁ ਹਿੰਦਵਾਣੀਆ ਕਿਉ ਟਿਕੇ ਕਢਹਿ ਨਾਇ ॥
chauke vin hindavaaneea kiau ttike kadteh naae |

Without their sacred squares, how shall the Hindu women bathe and apply the frontal marks to their foreheads?

ਰਾਮੁ ਨ ਕਬਹੂ ਚੇਤਿਓ ਹੁਣਿ ਕਹਣਿ ਨ ਮਿਲੈ ਖੁਦਾਇ ॥੬॥
raam na kabahoo chetio hun kahan na milai khudaae |6|

They never remembered their Lord as Raam, and now they cannot even chant Khudaa-i||6||

ਇਕਿ ਘਰਿ ਆਵਹਿ ਆਪਣੈ ਇਕਿ ਮਿਲਿ ਮਿਲਿ ਪੁਛਹਿ ਸੁਖ ॥
eik ghar aaveh aapanai ik mil mil puchheh sukh |

Some have returned to their homes, and meeting their relatives, they ask about their safety.

ਇਕਨੑਾ ਏਹੋ ਲਿਖਿਆ ਬਹਿ ਬਹਿ ਰੋਵਹਿ ਦੁਖ ॥
eikanaa eho likhiaa beh beh roveh dukh |

For some, it is pre-ordained that they shall sit and cry out in pain.
