Eji Bhamar gufaa re upar dekhtaa,
bhaai kaho kesaa gunn hoy;
jag-mag jot jal-hale,
ane vasat nuraani soy 1

Eji Dhiro dhiro re bhaai momano,
ane dhire te sab kuchh hoy;
maali re sinche chogannaa bhaai,
rut binaa fal na hoy 2

Eji Shariat hak kari jaanni-e,
to turat tarikat paay;
hakikat dil maane nakaasi ye,
to maarfat-e mili jaay 3

Eji Sayyed Mahammad Shaah aankhe venati,
tame saanbharo rab sataar;
hi bando gunegaar hay,
saanhiyaa bakshi-e bakshann-haar 4

O brother! Tell (me) what charm dost thou experience?
There twinkleth the light so brightly and it is the very thing of
luminosity (Noorani). ...1

Have patience. O momin! Through patience everything can be
achieved. May a gardener water (the trees) a hundred times, unless
the season sets in there won't be fruits. ...2
The Shariat, if thou takest it to be true, readily, the Tarikat
attain shalt thou; the Haqiqat in (thy) heart engravest if thou,
