I ask for the Lord's spiritual wisdom, and the Lord's sublime sermon; through the Name of the Lord, I have come to know His value and His state.
The Creator has made my life totally fruitful; I chant the Name of the Lord.

The golden body is saddled with the saddle of gold.
It is adorned with the jewel of the Name of the Lord, Har, Har.

He obtains the Word of the Guru's Shabad, and he meditates on the Name of the Lord; by great good fortune, he assumes the color of the Lord's Love.
He meets his Lord and Master, the Inner-knower, the Searcher of hearts; His body is ever-new, and His color is ever-fresh.
Nanak chants and realizes the Naam; he begs for the Name of the Lord, the Lord God. ||2||

Sing the songs of joy to the Lord, serve the Name of the Lord, and become the servant of His servants.
You shall go and enter the Mansion of the Beloved Lord's Presence, and lovingly enjoy His Love.

Raag Wadahans, Fifth Mehl, Chhant, Fourth House:
One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:
Meeting with the Guru, I have found my Beloved Lord God.
I have made this body and mind a sacrifice, a sacrificial offering to my Lord.
Dedicating my body and mind, I have crossed over the terrifying world-ocean, and shaken off the fear of death.
Drinking in the Ambrosial Nectar, I have become immortal; my comings and goings have ceased.
I have found that home, of celestial Samaadhi; the Name of the Lord is my only Support.
Says Nanak, I enjoy peace and pleasure; I bow in reverence to the Perfect Guru. ||1||
Listen, O my friend and companion
- the Guru has given the Mantra of the Shabad, the True Word of God.
Meditating on this True Shabad, I sing the songs of joy, and my mind is rid of anxiety.
I have found God, who never leaves; forever and ever, He sits with me.
One who is pleasing to God receives true honor. The Lord God blesses him with wealth.
