my soul’s forgotten, its voice unheard.
The sun and moon no longer brightly shine,
the stars distant, live isolated and lost.
The world, my friends, my family and I
search for answers to enlighten our lives.
Tempted by society, disillusioned am I
The Truth my curse, brings my ego pain.
The guilt, the knowledge of my many sins
I fear, leave forgotten, reality don’t face.
I hide in darkness, shattered life I live.
The Truth can’t face, too difficult it is.
When will I answer the call of my soul?
The Truth, my support, my livelihood.
Oh Nanak, Jas begs, enlightenment I seek
ferry me across this ocean drowning me.
Give me the Truth, my mind wash clean
bathe heart in love, my soul please free.
Oh Nanak, Jas begs the key to unlock maya’ chains
your shabad, mind enlightens, soul freedom attains.
