Her mind and body are imbued with the deep red color of His Love, and her tongue is imbued, singing His Praises and excellences.

sadaa sohaagan sabad man bhai bhaae kare seegaar |

She becomes His soul-bride forever, with the Word of the Shabad in her mind; she makes the Fear of God and the Love of God her ornaments and decorations.
