This composition by Guru Arjan Sahib is in Rag Asa, a musical mode used to evoke a mood of hope, expectation, inspiration, and courage.

Sabad is our loving immortal-stream,
Guru hasn’t held it back from the mind—
Not even for an instant, O! People. 1. Reflect.

Sabad colors in Creator’s Color,
Envisions, touches, blossoms, and delights, O! People. 1.

Nanak on Sabad:
Moment’s remembrance reaches the Guru,
Every breath lifts the fear,
String a garland of All-Pervasive around the neck,
and cherish it in the heart, O! People. 2.
