Eji Shaahnaa khat aayaa viraa janpudip maanhe;
kaany laaviyaa laaviyaa chandan vir 1

Eji Shaahnaa khat vaanchiyaa Pir Indr Imaamdin;
aaj maare haydde harakh na maay 2

Eji Paankhaddiyaa jo hove to Shaah ne jaai milun;
sun karun maaro pinddhaddo na haath 3

Eji Kandhodhar hove to kandh uddave;
evaa joi joi karun chun vichaar 4

Eji Fuladdaa vinnaavo viraa satiun tannaa;
jene nathi vaayaa Kaljugnaa vaay 5

Eji Raahi ne daragaai mili darage sonddhiyaa;
te to chaaliyaa aapanne Shaahaa ne farmaan 6

Eji Ratanaagar gaaje ati ddaraamannaa;
tiyaan kaayariyaa kaany chhaandde re paraann 7

Eji Vaagh ne sinhddaa raahiunnaa voraamannaa;
te chhe apannaa Shaahaa ne pichhaann 8

Eji Unchaa unchaa ddungar dise re ddaraamannaa;
tiaan vaae ttaaddhaa hemaa jalnaa vaae 9

Eji Raahi ne daragaahi mili darage pohotaa;
jaai potaa kahek nagri maanhe 10

Eji Kahek nagari dise ati ralliaamanni;
tiyaan betthaa apannaa tribhovar shaam 11

Eji Thaall bharaavo viraa sag moti-e;
vadhaavo apannaa tribhovar shaam. 12

Eji Pir Indr Imaamdin aashaa mukhe boliyaa vinati;
saami gat naa gunaa bakash karo ji 13
