UTTH BAETTH RE KEEYAA SUTAA - SAYYED IMAAM SHAAH

utth baetth re keeyaa sutaa, teraa sonaa bhaleraa naa(n)hee;

teraa shaahaa peer kadee naa suve,

tujhe sonaa kee(n)v bhaave.

teraa molaa kadee naa sove, tujhe sonaa kee(n)v bhaave............1

Wake up! Why are you asleep? It is not good for you to sleep. Your Lord and Peer never sleep, so how can you delight in sleeping?

Your Lord never sleeps, so how can you find pleasure in sleeping?

khatt ghaddee to peechhalee jaago, cheto muneevar bhaaee;

sarag bhavan thee huraa aavee,

nur naa peeyaalaa laaee...teraa molaa.............................2

Keep awake during the last watches of the night and reflect, o brother believer. From heaven's abode the houris have come, bringing vessels of light.

suraa hoe to rehenee jaago, cheto mere bhaaee;

nur naa peeyaalaa mukhe lagaayaa,

purab tenee kamaaee...teraa molaa.................................3

If you would be a hero, remain awake in the night and reflect, my brother. Those who put vessels of light to their lips accomplish their destiny.

jeekare jaago ba(n)dagee maa(n)go, jeekar karo elaahee;

kharee daso(n)dee gat naa melaa,

haajar betthaa saa(n)hee...teraa molaa............................4

Remain awake in meditation, and beg for the chance of devotion, as you perform the divine meditation. Through proper payment of the tithe, and the company of the congregation, the Lord dwells present.

veeraa hete pireete amee-ras peejo, velaa gat maa(n) jaaee;

gur-nar behu jaaher aaveeaa,

paratak betthaa bhaaee...teraa molaa..............................5

O brother, drink the holy nectar in love and adoration, entering the congregation in good time. Then the Guide and the Lord both come to reveal themselves, dwelling there manifestly, o brother.

veeraa peer imaam shaah boleeaa, saa(n)bhalo muneevar bhaaee;

jaagann-haaraa jaagajo, nur jahuraa thaee...teraa molaa...........6

O brother, Peer Imaam Shaah has said: listen, o brother believers. Let those who would wake remain awake, for the Light has been revealed.
