Soohee, Fifth Mehl:
Meditating on the Lord, the Lord's Temple has been built; the Saints and devotees sing the Lord's Glorious Praises.
Meditating, meditating in remembrance of God, their Lord and Master, they discard and renounce all their sins.
Singing the Glorious Praises of the Lord, the supreme status is obtained. The Word of God's Bani is sublime and exalted.
God's Sermon is so very sweet. It brings celestial peace. It is to speak the Unspoken Speech.
The time and the moment were auspicious, blessed and true, when the eternal foundation of this Temple was placed.
O servant Nanak, God has been kind and compassionate; with all His powers, He has blessed me. ||1||

The Gurmukh chants the Bani of the unstruck melody; hearing it, listening to it, my mind and body are rejuvenated.
All pleasures are obtained, by that one whom God makes His Own.

God, the King, has given me shade under His canopy, and the fire of desire has been totally extinguished.
The home of sorrow and sin has been demolished, and all affairs have been resolved.
When the Lord God so commands, misfortune is averted; true righteousness, Dharma and charity flourish.
