Guru Nanak Sahib in Dhanasari Rag | Guru Granth Sahib 660 | Artist: Bhai Onkar Singh Ji

Sabad Recitation


The Sabad opens with an intimate tremor within, a yearning for someone to call upon. The call to serve the Remover of sufferings reverberates in this vulnerability, underscoring the concept of an eternal giver.

My being trembles; whom shall I call?
Serve the Remover of sufferings, forever and ever the Giver. 1.
My Sovereign is new every day,
Ever and ever the Giver. 1. Reflect.

Every day, serve the Sovereign,
In the end, the only One who liberates.
My being, listen and listen to cross over. 2.
Compassionate, Your Nam carries me across.
Forever, I offer myself to You. 1. Reflect.

The Eternal One is everywhere; there is no other.
Those serve on whom You Gaze. 3.
Beloved, how can I live without You?
Bestow me the honor of living in Your Nam.
Beloved, there is no other to whom I can turn to. 1. Reflect.

I serve my Sovereign; I ask from no other.Nanak is Your votary; I offer every moment and every bit. 4.
Sovereign to Your Nam, I offer every moment and every bit. 1. Reflect. 4.
