Jire bhaaire amaraapuri bahaar ek nadi jo vahe
kaataranni nadi tenun naam ji 1

Jire bhaaire kaataranni nadi te kaatari naakhe

Jire bhaaire duniyaa maanhe je koi kiriyaa nahi paalle

Jire bhaaire Guruji-e tamane vaatt dekhaaddi

Jire bhaaire amaraapuri maanheruddi chhe rachnaa

Jire bhaaire jo tame kiriyaa dharam paallo

Jire bhaaire naari purush doe karanni kamaavo

Jire bhaaire te naari sadaa purush saathe

Jire bhaaire sukh te naari sadaa rang raache

Jire bhaaire dehi tamaari evaa sej sukh maanne

Jire bhaaire Gur Imaam Shaah ginaan-j bhaakhiyaa
juvo tame ved vichaari ji. 12

It is called 'pointed like a scissor'.

O living brothers, this river called 'sharp or pointed like a scissor'
cuts anyone (who does not belong there) in it's vicinity.
How can such a person ever arrive in the eternal abode.
