Main Nivan Mera Murshid Ucha - I am lowly; my Spiritual Guide is the Exalted One [LYRICS AND ENGLISH TRANSLATION]
Ae tan mera akhia hove Tan main murshid vekh na rajan hu Looñ looñ de mudh lakh lakh chashmam ik kholam hik kajan hu
Itna diteya sabar na aave Hor kite vall bhajjaaN hu Murshid da deedar hai bahu Mainu lakh karodan hajan hu
Were my whole body festooned with eyes, I would gaze at my Master with untiring zeal.
O, how I wish that every pore of my body Would turn into a million eyes -- Then, as some closed to blink, others would open to see!
But even then my thirst to see him Might remain unquesnched. What else am I to do?
To me, O Bahu, a glimpse of my Master Is worth millions of pilgrimages to the holy Ka'ba!
Main Nivan Mera Murshid Ucha, Uchian De Sang Layi Sadqe Janwan Ainhan Uchian Tu, Jinhan Nivian Naal Nibhai
I am lowly; my Spiritual Guide is the Exalted One, I am made to joined Him
I, the lowly one, I am so honoured to have gained the acceptance of the Exalted One
Murshid De Darwaze Utte Mokam Laiye Jhoukan Navain Navain Na Yaar Banaiye Wang Kaminian Lokan
Make the threshold of the Spiritual Guide your home Make no new friends, like those who lay wretched
Har Mushkil Di Kunji Yaaro Hath Mardan De Aayi Mard Nazar Kare Jis Waile, Mushkil Rahe Nake
Solutions to all problems lay in the hands of Exalted Men A problem ceases to exist when the Exalted One casts his eye
Je Waikhan Main lmaan Wale, Kujh Nahi Mere Pale Je Waikhan Tairi Rehmat Wale, Balle, Balle, Balle
If, I gaze at my deeds, none is the answerBut, if I gaze at your mercy, glorious is the answer
Mali Bagh Di Rakhi Karda Phal Kache Hon Ya Pake Peer Mureedan De Ser Te Renda Jhoote Hon Ya Sache
The orchard-keeper has a duty of watching over his fruits even if they are ripe or not
A Spiritual Master is always guiding his people, even if he is sincere or not
Mali Da Kam Pani Dena Bhar Bhar Mashkan Paway Malik Da Kam Phal Phul Laona Laway Ya Na Laway
The gardener's duty is to water his plants in abundance It is the Master's act of kindness to produce fruits from within or not
Le Sajna Asan Taur Nibhai Te Jan Diti Rah Tere Hashar Deharae Sharman Tainu, Parde Kaj Layen Mere
O Friend! I have kept my Promise; my life is scarified your way Now, save me from shame and embarrassment on the Judgement Day
Toon Baili Te Sab Jag Baili Te An Baili Wi Baili Sajna Bajh Muhammad Bakhsha Sunji Payi Ae Haveli
If you are warm then even the unfriendly become friendly O Muhammad Baksh, the whole World seems deserted without friends
Dushman Mare Te Khushi Na Kariye Sajna Wi Mar Jana Deegar Te Din Aaya Muhammad, Te Oudak Nu Dub Jana
Rejoice not if your enemy suffers death as all will face the same
O Muhammad Baksh, the evening has come, the end is near, for, it will be covered in darkness
