I am not afraid of losing my life, I am afraid of losing your love - Bhagat Ravidas

Sung in Raag Asa or the color of Hope

Hope - Bhagat Ravidas

I am not afraid of losing my life
I am afraid of losing your love

Prosperity property and wealth are Maya
Your servant's heart doesn't dwell on those

My heart's home is in your lotus feet
Drinking its wash is God's wealth

I am tied by your love's rope
What is the benefit of escaping?


ਕਹਾ ਭਇਓ ਜਉ ਤਨੁ ਭਇਓ ਛਿਨੁ ਛਿਨੁ
What would it matter, if my body were cut into pieces?
ਪ੍ਰੇਮੁ ਜਾਇ ਤਉ ਡਰਪੈ ਤੇਰੋ ਜਨੁ ॥੧॥
If I were to lose Your Love, Lord, then Your humble servant would be afraid. ||1||

ਤੁਝਹਿ ਚਰਨ ਅਰਬਿੰਦ ਭਵਨ ਮਨੁ
Your lotus feet are the home of my mind.
ਪਾਨ ਕਰਤ ਪਾਇਓ ਪਾਇਓ ਰਾਮਈਆ ਧਨੁ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ
Drinking in Your Nectar, I have obtained the wealth of the Lord. ||1||Pause||

ਸੰਪਤਿ ਬਿਪਤਿ ਪਟਲ ਮਾਇਆ ਧਨੁ
Prosperity, adversity, property and wealth are just Maya.
ਤਾ ਮਹਿ ਮਗਨ ਹੋਤ ਤੇਰੋ ਜਨੁ ॥੨॥
Your humble servant is not engrossed in them. ||2||

ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਕੀ ਜੇਵਰੀ ਬਾਧਿਓ ਤੇਰੋ ਜਨ
Your humble servant is tied by the rope of Your Love.
ਕਹਿ ਰਵਿਦਾਸ ਛੂਟਿਬੋ ਕਵਨ ਗੁਨ ॥੩॥੪॥
Says Ravi Daas, what benefit would I get by escaping from it? ||3||4||
