jithai jaa-ay bahai mayraa satguroo so thaan suhaavaa raam raajay
Wherever my True Guru goes and sits, that place is beautiful, O Lord King.

The Guru's Sikhs seek out that place; they take the dust and apply it to their faces.

The works of the Guru's Sikhs, who meditate on the Lord's Name, are approved.

jinH naanak satgur pooji-aa tin har pooj karaavaa 2
Those who worship the True Guru, O Nanak - the Lord causes them to be worshipped in turn.

gursikhaa man har pareet hai har naam har tayree raam raajay
The Guru's Sikh keeps the Love of the Lord, and the Name of the Lord, in his mind. He loves You, O Lord, O Lord King.
