    O greed, you cling to even the great, assaulting them with countless waves.
    You cause them to run around wildly in all directions, wobbling and wavering unsteadily.
    You have no respect for friends, ideals, relations, mother or father.
    You make them do what they should not do. You make them eat what they should not eat. You make them accomplish what they should not accomplish.
    Save me, save me - I have come to Your Sanctuary, O my Lord and Master; Nanak prays to the Lord. ||48||
