ohee pee-o ohee khee-o gureh dee-o daan kee-o.
I have consumed only the intoxicant of God’s Name and I am inebriated with it. It is the Guru who has given me this drink of Naam in charity,
Nimekunywa tu kileo cha Jina la Mungu na nimelevya nalo. Ni Guru ambaye amenipa kinywaji hiki cha Naam kwa hisani.

ਉਆਹੂ ਸਿਉ ਮਨੁ ਰਾਤੋ ॥੧॥
u-aahoo si-o man raato. ||1||
and it is this very drink of Naam that my mind is imbued with. ||1||
na ni kinywaji hiki cha Naam ambacho akili yangu imejawa nacho.

ਓ‍ੁਹੀ ਭਾਠੀ ਓ‍ੁਹੀ ਪੋਚਾ ਉਹੀ ਪਿਆਰੋ ਉਹੀ ਰੂਚਾ ॥
ohee bhaathee ohee pochaa uhee pi-aaro uhee roochaa.
God’s Name is my distilling furnace. God’s Name is the cooling plaster on the distilling pipe and it is also the the cup for drinking; Love with Naam is my intoxication.
Jina la Mungu ni tanuru yangu ya kutonesha. Jina la Mungu ni plasta ya kupoza kwenye bomba la kutonesha na pia ni kikombe cha kunywa; Upendo kwa Naam ni kulevya kwangu.

ਮਨਿ ਓਹੋ ਸੁਖੁ ਜਾਤੋ ॥੨॥
man oho sukh jaato. ||2||

O’ Nanak, one whose heart is pierced with the Guru’s immaculate word, enjoys the pleasing frolicks in intuitive peace; his cycle of birth and death ends and he merges with God.
Ee Nanak, yule ambaye moyo wake umepenyezwa na neno safi la Guru, anafurahia michezo ya kupendeza kwa amani angavu; mzunguko wake wa kuzaliwa na kufa unatamatika na anaungana na Mungu

One eternal God, realized by the grace of the true Guru:
Mungu Mmoja wa milele, anayegunduliwa kwa neema ya Guru wa kweli:

ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਲੇਹੁ ਮੀਤਾ ਲੇਹੁ ਆਗੈ ਬਿਖਮ ਪੰਥੁ ਭੈਆਨ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

ਸੇਵਤ ਸੇਵਤ ਸਦਾ ਸੇਵਿ ਤੇਰੈ ਸੰਗਿ ਬਸਤੁ ਹੈ ਕਾਲੁ ॥
sayvat sayvat sadaa sayv tayrai sang basat hai kaal.
Contemplate Naam forever and serve God by remembering Him with devotion; Death, always hangs over your head.
Tafakari Naam milele na utumikie Mungu kwa kumkumbuka kwa kujitolea; Kifo, daima kinaning’nia juu ya kichwa chako.

ਕਰਿ ਸੇਵਾ ਤੂੰ ਸਾਧ ਕੀ ਹੋ ਕਾਟੀਐ ਜਮ ਜਾਲੁ ॥੧॥
kar sayvaa tooN saaDh kee ho kaatee-ai jam jaal. ||1||

Tumikia Guru kwa kutafakari Naam na utafanywa huru kutoka mzunguko wa kuzaliwa na kufa.

hom jag tirath kee-ay bich ha-umai baDhay bikaar.
The ego of performing rituals such as fire worship, sacrificial feasts and pilgrimage increases the load of sins.
Ubinafsi wa kufanya mila kama ibada ya moto, sherehe za dhabihu na hija zinaongeza mzigo wa dhambi.

narak surag du-ay bhunchanaa ho-ay bahur bahur avtaar. ||2||

bin har sayvaa sukh nahee ho saakat aavahi jaahi. ||3||
Without the devotional service of God, there is no peace and the faithless cynicsremain in the cycle of birth and death.||3||
Bila huduma ya kujitolea kwa Mungu, hakuna amani na wabeuzi wasio na imani wanabaki katika mzunguko wa kuzaliwa na kufa.

ਜੈਸੋ ਗੁਰਿ ਉਪਦੇਸਿਆ ਮੈ ਤੈਸੋ ਕਹਿਆ ਪੁਕਾਰਿ ॥
jaiso gur updaysi-aa mai taiso kahi-aa pukaar.
As the Guru has taught me, so have I spoken.
Kama Guru alivyonifunza, ndivyo nimezungumza.

ja-o saaDhoo kar mastak Dhari-o tab ham mukat bha-ay. ||2||
I got liberated from the worldly bonds when the Guru showered his blessing.||2||
Nilikombolewa kutoka vifungo vya kidunia wakati Guru alinyunyuza baraka yake.

ja-o la-o pot uthaa-ee chali-a-o ta-o la-o daan bharay.
As long as I carried the load of worldly attachments, I continued to live a life full of discontentment.
Ili mradi nilibeba mzigo wa viambatisho vya kidunia, niliendelea kuishi maishi yaliyojawa na kutoridhika.
