Maalee Gauraa, Fifth Mehl:

This is the sort of helper the Name of the Lord is.

Meditating in the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy, one's affairs are perfectly resolved. ||1||Pause||

It is like a boat to a drowning man.

It is like oil to the lamp whose flame is dying out.

It is like water poured on the burning fire.

It is like milk poured into the baby's mouth. ||1||

As one's brother becomes a helper on the field of battle;

as one's hunger is satisfied by food;

as the cloudburst saves the crops;

as one is protected in the tiger's lair;||2||

As with the magic spell of Garuda the eagle upon one's lips, one does not fear the snake;

as the cat cannot eat the parrot in its cage;

as the bird cherishes her eggs in her heart;

as the grains are spared, by sticking to the central post of the mill;||3||

Your Glory is so great; I can describe only a tiny bit of it.

O Lord, You are inaccessible, unapproachable and unfathomable.

You are lofty and high, utterly great and infinite.

Meditating in remembrance on the Lord, O Nanak, one is carried across. ||4||3||
