Saaheb ji tun more man bhaave,
avar more chint na aave;
dujaa more man na bhaave, *(doddh)
*(doddh) i.e. varanni is one and half lines

Eji Je je maagun te tunhi deve;
evaa evaa laadd laddaave - saahebji 1

Eji Chaare chaare jug maanhe fari fari joyun;
tere tole koi na aave, - saahebji 2

Eji Chalo saaheli var jovaa jai-e;
so piyaa mene paayaa- saahebji 3

Eji Jis re vinaa ghaddi doheli jaave;
so piyaa more mandir aave- saahebji 4

Eji Jis kaare saaheb aysaa hove;
so dukhyaa kiyun kar kahaave - saahebji 5

Eji Dosh dayaal jine kiyun kar dije,
karame likhiyaa so paave- saahebji 6

Eji Raam Rahemaan ek gusaanhiyaa;
murakh maram na paave- saahebji 7

Eji Bolyaa Sayyed Mahammed Shaah
sharann tamaare;
tuje chhoddi duje duaare
kahaan jaave - saahebji 8

SAHEBJI TUN MORE MAN BHAVE
Sayyed Muhammadshah
O my Lord dear art Thou to me.
None else doth come to my mind.
Anybody else is not dear to me. ...1

Refrain: O my Lord dear art Thou to me.
Demand what I, Thou grantst it.
Thus thou fondlest me. ...2

I wandered long through all the four 'Joogs'
(and realized that) there is none that equals Thee. ...3

Come my friends,
let us go in quest of the Fiance (The Lord).
O found have I that very Lord. (Lover) ...4

Without whom every moment passeth so unbearable,
that very Lord is coming to my house. ...5

Who so hath such a Lord,

O Lord you are the one that I adore

none else occupies my mind

no one else do I adore

O Lord you are the one I adore ...1

I have gone through all the four yugs

none is like you (you have no parallel)

O Lord you are the one I adore ...2

Let us, O friends, go to look for a beloved

The loved one whom I have befriended

O Lord you are the one I adore ...3

He is the one without (didar) whom every moment

passes in agony

That Lord is coming home

O Lord you are the one I adore ...4

SAHEBJI TU MORE MAN BHAVE

Sayyed Muhammadshah

O my Lord! You are the one I adore

None else comes into my mind except You

None else is dearer to me, O Lord

You are the one I adore ...1

Whatever I ask is granted by You

You do "spoil" me O Lord ...2

I've passed through the four ages searching

But no one can be compared with you ...3

Come, O friends! Let us go in quest

(spiritually) of the Lord,

The Lord whom I have met ...4

The Lord, whose absence even for a second

makes my life most miserable,

(With His blessing) visits my heart
