Prabhaate uthine saami maaraa

Eji Prabhaate uthine saami maaraa ratan lutavyaa re bhai

O momins! At Dawn, after waking up, my Lord has lavished diamonds and gems. O brother! Whatever fruits you can pick, select and keep them. O my souls, be awake and take heed, o my lively ones. Today for the devoted souls the Night passes away in happiness.

Eji chaare pahore rajhenni viraabhaai sui mat rahejo re
Bhaai pachhali khat ghaddee aapnaa alakhane aaraadho re, tame jaago...2

O momins! Do not sleep for all the four pahors of the night, o courageous brothers. O brother! Be devoted to your Incomprehensible Lord for the last six ghaddees of the night, be awake....
