This composition by Guru Nanak Sahib is in Rag Siri, an ancient musical mode sung at dusk. Its mood is majestic, reflective, and meditative. The reflection: The Creator is in the creation. Everything is brimming with love, operating in love.

You are the Lover; You are the Love; You are the Enjoyer.
You are the bride; You are the Groom; You are the bed. 1.

My Sovereign is dyed in color-love, totally permeating everywhere. 1. Reflect.

You are the fisherman; You are the fish; You are the water; You are the net.
You are the weight in the net; You are the inside bait. 2.

You love in many ways, O Maiden! This is my Beloved.
Continuously enjoying bride-lovers, look at my plight too. 3.

Hear my plea, prays Nanak: You are the pool, You are the swan,
You are the lotus, You are the water-lily; You behold all in blooming-joyousness. 4.
