Eji Aash puni ham Shah dar aaya
Raiyañ bini more Shah jagaaya
Shah jagaaya Shahka naamaj liña

Bi saa(n)iya het paaye rang laago
Bi saa(n)iya Pir paaye rang laago
Bi Saheb tose-thi man baandho
Moro dil baandho ji

 
O Brother: My hopes and wishes were accomplished when I attained the gate
(or recognition) of the Imam. The Imam awakened me from the night
(darkness of ignorance) which is now over.
Since the time when the Imam awakened me,
I have been taking His name only (wholeheartedly).

Oh Lord, through love, I have attained the colours (good values).
Oh Lord, through the (guidance of the) Pir, I have the colours.
Oh Imam, with you, my mind is bound and my heart is firm.

1
Eji Lagdi re prit, ham neh na chhodu(n)
Dhar sir karvat ang na modu(n)
Jo jiv jaave Shahka naam na chhodu(n)
Bi saa(n)iya..
 
O Brother: I have experienced the (Divine) love, I will not leave it.
Even if a sword hangs over my head, I will not surrender my body.
Even if I die, I will not abondon the name of the Imam.
2
Eji Marña bi marña, yaara sab koi jaañe
Chint na chete ne aap vakhaañe
Vañ re chete jannat huraa(n) kyaa(n) thaki paave
Bi saa(n)iya..
 
O Brother: Everyone has to die, O friend, every one knows about it.
Yet they do not reflect over this in their minds
and are engaged in self praise (boasting).
Without being cautious and vigilant,
how can one attain the paradise and the angels?
3
Eji Shahji hamaaro, Ali vardaata
Aan milo Shah tu(n) aap vasilo
Shahji dekhe Shahku(n) koi koi dekhe
Bi saa(n)iya..
 
O Brother: My Master is Aly who is the Provider and Protector.
Come and meet the Imam who is your only channel (for salvation).
The Imam sees everybody but very few see the Imam
(in His essential nature).
4
Eji Saheb hamaaro, kisiye nay jehi
Var dinu(n) Shah deh padehi
Aash puni hamne laadha chhe tehi..
Bi saa(n)iya..
 
O Brother: My Imam does not discriminate between anyone.
In every birth the Imam has given provision and protection.
My hopes and wishes have been fulfilled
after finding such an entity.
5
Eji Pir Sadardin yaara pade re Qur'ana
Bahaar jaave taaku(n) andar laana
Shahne sujaaño aapña Pirne pichhaaño
Bi saa(n)iya..
 
O Brother: Pir Sadardin recites the Qur'an.
He brings back into the fold those who leave it.
Know the Imam (in His essence) and recognise your Pir (Guide).
6
Eji Aal Pir Shams farzand Sadardin
E faal bolya gur Pir Hasan Kabirdin
Bi saa(n)iya..
 
O Brother: I am the progeny of Pir Shams,
and am the son of Pir Sadardin.
These good tidings have been uttered
by the Guide Pir Hassan Kabirdin.
