ik onkaar sat naam kartaa purakh nirbh-a-o nirvair akaal moorat ajoonee saibhn gur parsaad jap.
aad sach jugaad sach.
hai bhee sach naanak hosee bhee sach.
sochai soch naa hov-a-ee jay sochee lakh vaar.
chupai chup naa hov-a-ee jay laa-i rahaa liv taar.
bhukhi-aa bhukh naa utree jay bannaa puree-aa bhaar.
sehas si-aanpaa lakh hoh taa ik naa chalai naal.
kiv sachi-aaraa ho-ee-ai kiv koorhai tutai paal.
hukam rajaa-ee chalnaa naanak likhi-aa naal
