SAAHEB JI TU(N) MORE MAN BHAAVE
BY SAYYED MUHAMMED SHAAH

saaheb jee tu(n) more man bhaave, avar more chi(n)t na aave
dujaa more man na bhaave, saaheb jee tu(n) more man bhaave........1

O Lord (Master - Imaam)! You are dear to my heart (mind),
nothing else cometh to my mind except You. My heart does not desire
anyone else, O Lord! You alone are my heart's desire.

je je maagu(n) te tu(n)hee deve, evaa evaa laadd laddaave.........2

Whatever I ask You, is granted by their favours.
This is the manner in which You caressth me.

ejee chaare chaare jug maa(n)he fari fari joyu(n)
tere tole koi na aave, saheeb ji tu..........................3

I have repeatedly passed through the four ages but none did
I meet who would stand in comparison to You.

ejee chaalo saahelee var jovaa jai-e, so peeyaa mene paayaa.......4

Come, O friends! let us go in quest for the Master (Husband),
He is indeed the Beloved whom I have found (attained).

ejee jees re vinaa ghaddee dohelee jaave,
so peeyaa mere ma(n)dir aave.................................5

The one without whom my time passes in misery,
is the Beloved who visits my heart.

ejee jees kaa re saaheb aysaa hove
so dukheeyaa keeyu(n) kar kahaave, .......................6

Those who have such a Lord, how could they be called miserable and unhappy?

ejee dosh dayaal jee ne kee-u(n) kar deeje
karam leekheeyaa sohee paave.................................7

Why should we blame our Merciful Lord for our misfortunes?
Only such things come to pass which our own actions bring forth.
(Whatsoever a man sows so shall he reap).

ejee raam rahemaan donu ek gusaa(n)heeyaa
murakh maram na paave........................................8

People worship Raam or Rahemaan. The names or foams differ
but in reality they are both from the same Light. The foolish do
not grasp the secret of all this.

ejee bolyaa sayyed mahammed shaah sharann tamaare
tuje chhoddee duje duvaare kahaa(n) jaave....................9

Sayyed Muhammadshah says: "(O Lord!) I surrender myself to You.
How can one forsake (your protection and care) and seek another abode?
