Girhī meh saḝĝ har jan uḝĝsī gi­ĝn ṯaṯ bīcẖĝrī. Saṯgur sėv saḝĝ sukẖ pĝ­i­ĝ har rĝkẖi­ĝ ur ḝẖĝrī. (2)
Immersed in family life, the Lord's humble servant ever remains detached; he reflects upon the essence of spiritual wisdom.

Serving the True Guru, he finds eternal peace, and he keeps the Lord enshrined in his heart. (2)
