Galeen asee changee-aa aachaaree buree-aah
Manhu kusudhaa kaalee-aa baahar chitvee-aah
reesaa karih tinaarhee-aa jo sayveh dar ralee-aah

hodai taan nitaanee-aa raheh nimaannee-aah
Naanak janam sakaarthaa jay tin kai sang milaah

English Translation

We are good at talking, but our actions are bad. Mentally, we are impure and black, but outwardly, we appear white. We imitate those who stand and serve at the Lord's Door. They are attuned to the Love of their Husband Lord, and they experience the pleasure of His Love. They remain powerless, even while they have power; they remain humble and meek. O Nanak, our lives become profitable if we associate with them.
