    ਗਉੜੀ ਮਹਲਾ ੫ ॥
    Gauree, Fifth Mehl:

    ਓਹੁ ਅਬਿਨਾਸੀ ਰਾਇਆ ॥
    He is the Eternal King.

    ਨਿਰਭਉ ਸੰਗਿ ਤੁਮਾਰੈ ਬਸਤੇ ਇਹੁ ਡਰਨੁ ਕਹਾ ਤੇ ਆਇਆ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
    The Fearless Lord abides with you. So where does this fear come from? ||1||Pause||

    ਏਕ ਮਹਲਿ ਤੂੰ ਹੋਹਿ ਅਫਾਰੋ ਏਕ ਮਹਲਿ ਨਿਮਾਨੋ ॥
    In one person, You are arrogant and proud, and in another, You are meek and humble.

    ਏਕ ਮਹਲਿ ਤੂੰ ਆਪੇ ਆਪੇ ਏਕ ਮਹਲਿ ਗਰੀਬਾਨੋ ॥੧॥
    In one person, You are all by Yourself, and in another, You are poor. ||1||

    ਏਕ ਮਹਲਿ ਤੂੰ ਪੰਡਿਤੁ ਬਕਤਾ ਏਕ ਮਹਲਿ ਖਲੁ ਹੋਤਾ ॥
    In one person, you are a Pandit, a religious scholar and a preacher, and in another, You are just a fool.

    ਏਕ ਮਹਲਿ ਤੂੰ ਸਭੁ ਕਿਛੁ ਗ੍ਰਾਹਜੁ ਏਕ ਮਹਲਿ ਕਛੂ ਨ ਲੇਤਾ ॥੨॥
    In one person, You grab hold of everything, and in another, You accept nothing. ||2||

    ਕਾਠ ਕੀ ਪੁਤਰੀ ਕਹਾ ਕਰੈ ਬਪੁਰੀ ਖਿਲਾਵਨਹਾਰੋ ਜਾਨੈ ॥
    What can the poor wooden puppet do? The Master Puppeteer knows everything.

    ਜੈਸਾ ਭੇਖੁ ਕਰਾਵੈ ਬਾਜੀਗਰੁ ਓਹੁ ਤੈਸੋ ਹੀ ਸਾਜੁ ਆਨੈ ॥੩॥
    As the Puppeteer dresses the puppet, so is the role the puppet plays. ||3||

    ਅਨਿਕ ਕੋਠਰੀ ਬਹੁਤੁ ਭਾਤਿ ਕਰੀਆ ਆਪਿ ਹੋਆ ਰਖਵਾਰਾ ॥
    The Lord has created the various chambers of assorted descriptions, and He Himself protects them.

    ਜੈਸੇ ਮਹਲਿ ਰਾਖੈ ਤੈਸੈ ਰਹਨਾ ਕਿਆ ਇਹੁ ਕਰੈ ਬਿਚਾਰਾ ॥੪॥
    As is that vessel in which the Lord places the soul, so does it dwell. What can this poor being do? ||4||

    ਜਿਨਿ ਕਿਛੁ ਕੀਆ ਸੋਈ ਜਾਨੈ ਜਿਨਿ ਇਹ ਸਭ ਬਿਧਿ ਸਾਜੀ ॥
    The One who created the thing, understands it; He has fashioned all of this.

    ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਅਪਰੰਪਰ ਸੁਆਮੀ ਕੀਮਤਿ ਅਪੁਨੇ ਕਾਜੀ ॥੫॥੫॥੧੨੬॥
    Says Nanak, the Lord and Master is Infinite; He alone understands the value of His Creation. ||5||5||126|| ​
