Eji Sami raajo more manthi na visre ji
To suno suno moman rahiya
ho jire bhaiya
 
O momins My Lord is never forgotten in my heart,
so listen, listen all those who have remained (true) momins,
O my dear brothers.

Eji Teri meri saa(n)iya ek man ek chit
Sami raajo bharpur rahiya
ho jire bhaiya
 
O momins Yours and mine are one heart and one mind
I feel my Lord's presence everywhere.
O my dear brothers.

Eji Saam tana abhiyaagat aave vira
Tinku(n) mei(n) laagu(n)gi paiyaa(n)
ho jire bhaiya
 
O momins Brothers when my Lord (Imaam) pays me a visit as a guest,
I shall prostrate at His Holy Feet,
O dear brothers.
3
Eji Aape uthi Shahne besan dije vira
Sohi tamaara dharam likhaiyaa(n)
ho jire bhaiya
 
O momins O momins: Brothers, (when the Lord arrives) rise up and give Him a seat.

Eji Lai loto Shahna paau(n) dhoije vira
Sir par tel kangaiyaa(n)
ho jire bhaiya
 
O momins Brothers, take soap (powder) and wash His feet
and apply oil and comb His hair,
[i.e., Serve Him in every possible manner.]
O dear brothers.
5
Eji Khir ne khaand girath amrat bhojan vira
Sant tañe mukhe daiyaa(n)
ho jire bhaiya
 
O momins Brothers submit rice pudding, sugar, ghee, water and wheat
to the Lord, O dear brothers.

[All above are symbolic of the ingredients of sukreet (good deeds).
The symbolic significance of each ingredient is:

  1. kheer - milk symbolises 'zikr' which is prayer and remembrance of the Lord. Just as milk is a nourishing and health giving food for our body, so also 'zikr' is the real food for the soul which nourishes and enables it to grow into God.
  2. khaand - sugar symbolises 'Sat' the Truth which is always sweet (to the Lord although bitter to us) hence compared to sugar.
  3. grath - 'ghee' symbolises 'Imaan' , faith under all circumstances. 'Ghee' in a vessel will always remain 'ghee' no matter how much it is heated hence it symbolises steadfastness in faith.
  4. amrat - 'nectar', 'aab-e-shafa' symbolises smooth flow of patience without which virtue is impossible. It can also signify purity of heart and mind.
  5. bhojan - wheat symbolises 'khamiyaa', tolerance by virtue of it's ability to withstand great physical stress upon it in the process of it's transformation from grain into flour. It retains all it's properties of food inspite of being crushed between the grinding stones.]
6
Eji Dholiye talaaiye(n) Shahne podhan dije vira
Zina zia vaaho dholaiyaa(n)
ho jire bhaiya
 
O momins Brothers, lay a broad cot and mattress and cover Him
(make Him comfortable), and gently fan him,
O dear brothers.

Eji Chaare satiyu(n) Shahna mangal gaave vira
Motide chok puraiyaa(n)
ho jire bhaiya
 
O momins Brothers, the four saintly ladies will sing joyous songs on
such an auspicious occassion and they will decorate the market
place with precious pearls, O dear brothers.
8
Eji Eso ginan Pir bhanaave Sadardin vira
Mere momanbhaiku(n) bahesht likhaiyaa(n)
ho jire bhaiya
 
O momins Brothers, this Divine knowledge and wisdom is taught by Peer Sadardin.
My Lord has established paradise for my devoted momins,
O dear brothers.
