ਕਿਉ ਧੀਰੈਗੀ ਨਾਹ ਬਿਨਾ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਵੇਪਰਵਾਹੇ ॥
ki-o Dheeraigee naah binaa parabh vayparvaahay.
O’ my carefree husband God, how can I be solaced without You?

ਬਾਝਹੁ ਪਿਆਰੇ ਕੋਇ ਨ ਸਾਰੇ ਏਕਲੜੀ ਕੁਰਲਾਏ ॥
baajhahu pi-aaray ko-ay na saaray aykalrhee kurlaa-ay.
Besides the Husband-God, no one cares for the soul-bride and she wails alone.

pir chhodi-arhee jee-o kavan milaavai.
Who can unite that soul-bride who has been deserted by her husband-God?

satgur maylee taa pir raavee bigsee amrit banee.
When the true Guru attuned her to his Word, then the husband-God united her with Himself and she felt delighted singing the ambrosial words.

maa-i-aa mohnee neeghree-aa jee-o koorh muthee koorhi-aaray.

naam binaa gat ko-ay na paavai hath nigrahi baybaanai.
