Nirbhay Nirgun Gun Re Gaunga
Mool Kamal Dradh Aasan Bandhu-ji
Ulti Pavan Chadaunga
Man Mamta Ko Thir Kar Laun-ji
Pancho Tat Milaunga
Ingala Pingala Sukhman Nadi-ji
Tirveni Pe Haun Nahaunga
Panch Pachhison Pakad Mangaun-ji
Ek Hi Dor Lagaunga
Shunya Shikhar Par Anhad Baje-ji
Raag Chattis Sunaunga
Kahat Kabir Suno Bhai Sadho-ji
Jeet Nishan Ghuraunga
Fearless, formless, that’s the form I’ll sing
I’ll bind the root lotus,
Make the breath flow upward.
I’ll make the mind and feelings still
The five elements one.
Right, left, middle channels
I’ll bathe where three streams meet.
I’ll catch the five and twenty five,
String them on one thread.
On the peak of emptiness where the unstruck sound resounds,
I’ll sing thirty-six ragas.
Kabir says, listen, truth-seekers,
I’ll seize the sign of victory.
