Mehlā 2.
Second Mehl:

ਦਿਸੈ ਸੁਣੀਐ ਜਾਣੀਐ ਸਾਉ ਪਾਇਆ ਜਾਇ
Ḏisai suṇī*ai jāṇī*ai sā*o na pā*i*ā jā*ė.
He is seen, heard and known, but His subtle essence is not obtained.

ਰੁਹਲਾ ਟੁੰਡਾ ਅੰਧੁਲਾ ਕਿਉ ਗਲਿ ਲਗੈ ਧਾਇ
Ruhlā tundā anḏẖulā ki*o gal lagai ḏẖā*ė.
How can the lame, armless and blind person run to embrace the Lord?

ਭੈ ਕੇ ਚਰਣ ਕਰ ਭਾਵ ਕੇ ਲੋਇਣ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਕਰੇਇ
Bẖai kė cẖaraṇ kar bẖāv kė lo*iṇ suraṯ karė*i.
Let the Fear of God be your feet, and let His Love be your hands; let His Understanding be your eyes.

ਨਾਨਕੁ ਕਹੈ ਸਿਆਣੀਏ ਇਵ ਕੰਤ ਮਿਲਾਵਾ ਹੋਇ ॥੨॥
Nānak kahai si*āṇī*ė iv kanṯ milāvā ho*ė. ||2||
Says Nanak, in this way, O wise soul-bride, you shall be united with your Husband Lord. ||2||

I should have read the whole ang (139)!. Thanks anyways. I think the shabad also mean to see beyond wordly attachment and to avoid the 5 vices. Have Gurmukh qualities.
