ਸੁਣਿਐ ਸਿਧ ਪੀਰ ਸੁਰਿ ਨਾਥ ॥

ਸੁਣਿਐ ਧਰਤਿ ਧਵਲ ਆਕਾਸ ॥
suni-ai dharat dhaval aakaas
Listening…saints, heroes, masters. Listening… the earth, the power, the ethers.

ਸੁਣਿਐ ਧਰਤਿ ਧਵਲ ਆਕਾਸ ॥
suni-ai deep lo-a-paaatall

ਸੁਣਿਐ ਪੋਹਿ ਨ ਸਕੈ ਕਾਲੁ ॥
suni-ai pohi na sakai kaal
Listening… high and low realms, oceans of light. Listening… beyond time.

ਸੁਣਿਐ ਦੀਪ ਲੋਅ ਪਾਤਾਲ ॥
naanak bhagtaa sadaa vigaas

ਸੁਣਿਐ ਦੂਖ ਪਾਪ ਕਾ ਨਾਸੁ ॥੮॥
suni-ai dookh paap kaa naas
O Nanak! God's lovers bloom forever. Listening destroys all pain and error.
