Jire vaalaa paatt mandhaavine chok puraavo,
harakhe sun kalas thapaavo re vaalaa;
chaare sohaagann naidde teddaavo,
vadhaavo te kaayam saami re vaalaa.
aaj mindar raliaamannaa dise,
ruddaa saadh aaveaa
ruddaa sant aaveaa aapanne gher;
Parabhu ji padhaareaa mindare 1

Jire vaalaa dis tannaa re rudderaa dise,
ane bol tannaa mukh mitthaa re vaalaa;
pavitr thayaa ghar aangann maaraa,
jaare Sat Gur nayanne sun ditthaa re vaalaa aaj mindar 2

Jire vaalaa koi kahe chhe melaa ne koi kahe chhe chokhaa,
koi kahe chhe olaa kehevaa re vaalaa;
jot jagaaddine jumalo ji bayattho,
hun jaaun balahaari teni re vaalaa aaj mindar 3

Jire vaalaa saravanne sunneaa te men nayanne sun ditthaa,
hun to bhavo bhav daasi tamaari re vaalaa;
doeladdaa sarve dur karo,
aashaa venati karine paany laagun re vaalaa aaj mindar 4

Jire vaalaa Gur-Nar saathe ghotthaddi kije,
tatav akhasar sudh lije re vaalaa;
jenne thaki bhavasaagar tari-e,
sevaa saaheb ji ni kije re vaalaa aaj mindar 5

Jire vaalaa e ginaan maahaaras bhanne Pir Sadardin,
moman maaraa ami-ras pivaane aavo re vaalaa;
haajar jomaa ne paany paddije,
vadhaavo te kaayam saami re vaalaa aaj mindar 6

JIREWALA PAT MANDAVINE CHOK PURAVO

Pir Sadardeen

My dear momins, Prepare for the coming of our Lord

by laying the table (Pat)

decorating the floor with different colours

joyfully filling the vessels with water

and calling upon the four satis to help

with the preparation. ...1

Today the day seems auspicious for my beloved Lord

Has blessed me by coming to my house. ...Refrain

My dear momins, Everything seems glorious

And everyone's speech seems sweet

For my house (body) seems holy today

As I have seen my Lord today ...2

JIRE VAALAA PAAT MANDAAVINE
Pir Sadardeen

O dear ones having commenced (the ceremony of ghat paat)

colour your compounds and establish the 'ghat paat' with pleasure. Call closer the four fortunate ladies (the four 'sati', Ansuya, Kunta, Dropadi, Taara Rani)

and welcome with respect our Lord the eternal one.

O dear ones,

How beautiful does our abode look

the appropriate Saint (Hazir Imam) has come

the Lord has graced our abode ...1

O beloved ones by looks He is handsome and a sweet

speaking one too.

Sanctified has become the threshhold of my abode.
