Jo Hum Ko Parmeshwar Uchar Hai
Tay Sabh Narak Kund Mah Par Hai
Mo Ko Daas Tavan Kaa Jaano
Yaa Mai Bhed Na Runch Pachhaano
Mai Ho Param Purkh Ko Daasa
Dekhan Aayo Jagat Tamaasa
Jo Prabh Jagat Kahaa so Kahiho
Mirta lok tay mon na rahiho...(Bachittar Natak)
Those who address me as God
Shall fall into the pit of hell.
Treat me as a servant of the Lord
And entertain no doubt about it.
I am only a slave of the Lord. I have
only come to witness the Lord's play (Lila).
I tell the world what my God told me then;
I shall not keep silent on account of the fear of mere mortals.

These lines compiled by 10th guru Shri Guru Gobind Singh ji in the Bachittar Natak are a part of the Dasam Granth.

Related with the characteristic humility of the House of Guru Nanak, Guru Gobind Singh Ji did not arrogate to Himself God-hood but claimed Himself to be only a humble servant of God. He was born on Earth with a holy mission entrusted to Him by the Divine and attributed all of His accomplishments to Divine Grace and to the Khalsa.

Inhi Ki Kirpa Kay Sajay Hum Hai
Nahi Mo So Gareeb Kror Paray
(Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib)
It is due to their (the Khalsas') Grace that I have attained this glorious position. Otherwise there are crores of mortals like Guru gobind singh thats why I say:
Sab Sikhon Ko Hukam Hai
Guru Manio Granth
Guru Granth Ji Manyio
Pargat Guraan Ki Deh.

Reason being this is only the way to find the true Lord
