THE GREAT SURRENDER
Aakhan nah jor, chupai nah jor,
Jor nah ma(n)gan, dhaen nah jor.
I have no power to speak, no power to keep silent.
No power to beg, no power to give.
Jor nah jeevan, maran nah jor,
Jor nah raaj, maal man sor.
I have no power to live, no power to die.
No power to rule, with wealth and mental powers.
Jor nah surathee giaan veechaar,
Jor nah jugathee chhuttai sa(n)saar.
I have no power to gain intuitive understanding, spiritual wisdom and meditation.
No power to find the way to escape from the world.
Jis hathh jor kar vaekhai soe,
Naanak ootham neech nah koe.
He alone has the Power in His Hands, He watches over all.
O Nanak, no one is high or low.
