Allah ek khasam sab kaa

verses: 
17

Eji Alaah ek khasam sabukaa,
duniyaa uski saari;
avichal naam khudaavand bhanniye,
aur sab mittiyaa keri baaji.
varaanni:
alaah bhed tantav naam lije
aapnne jivdde ki chintaa re moman bhaai kije
aapne jivdde kun dojakh na dije
alaah bhed tantav naam lije 1

Eji Nabi Mahamad bujo bhaai,
to tame paamo Imaam;
musharak man to kaafar kahiye,
moman dil kuraan alaah 2

Eji Loho kalam nit utth dekhyaa,
to ek kun rad-j kiyaa;
fome mukar dhaave paddiyaa,
so lekhaa rada-j kiyaa alaah 3

Alaf niraale Khaalakh raaja

verses: 
11

Eji Alaf niraale khaalak raajaa,
alaah ghattbi andar sohi ji 1

Eji Jis ghatt andar sevaa teri ,
alaah sohi ghatt nirmal hoi ji 2

Eji Imaam pichhanno to sidak durast
tusaa jinat paa-oge thaan ji 3

Eji Sone rupe dhaa rang durastaa
Gur vaayek bhanne nur jaanno ji 4

Eji Shaytaan taait bahot-j ki-aa
saat jamin aasmaan ji 5

Eji Aadam khalifaa aage namiyaa naahi
so takbar kiyaa naadaan ji 6

Eji Ruh jajidhaa sag pindd paayaa
