ਰਾਰਾ ਰੇਨ ਹੋਤ ਸਭ ਜਾ ਕੀ ॥ रारा रेन होत सभ जा की ॥ RARRA: Be the dust under the feet of all.

ਤਜਿ ਅਭਿਮਾਨੁ ਛੁਟੈ ਤੇਰੀ ਬਾਕੀ ॥ तजि अभिमानु छुटै तेरी बाकी ॥ Give up your egotistical pride, and the balance of your account shall be written off.

ਰਣਿ ਦਰਗਹਿ ਤਉ ਸੀਝਹਿ ਭਾਈ ॥ रणि दरगहि तउ सीझहि भाई ॥ Then, you shall win the battle in the Court of the Lord, O Siblings of Destiny.

ਜਉ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਈ ॥ जउ गुरमुखि राम नाम लिव लाई ॥ As Gurmukh, lovingly attune yourself to the Lord's Name.

ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੇ ਕੈ ਸਬਦਿ ਅਪਾਰਾ ॥ गुर पूरे कै सबदि अपारा ॥ by the Shabad, the Incomparable Word of the Perfect Guru.

ਰਾਤੇ ਰੰਗ ਨਾਮ ਰਸ ਮਾਤੇ ॥ राते रंग नाम रस माते ॥ You shall be imbued with the Lord's Love, and intoxicated with the Nectar of the Naam.
