کَبِیرَہ
Great One
00 :33
کیسی تیری خود غَرَضی
نہ دُھوپ چُنے نہ چھاؤں
کیسی تیری خود غَرَضی
کِسی ٹَھور ٹِکْے نہ پاؤں
[the previous 4 lines x2]
بن لیا اپنا پَیغَمْبَر
تار لیا تُو سات سَمَُنْدَر
پھر بھی سُوکھا من کے اندر
کیوں رہ گیا
What kind of selfishness of yours is this
you choose neither sunlight nor shade
What kind of selfishness of yours is this
whose feet don't stay in a fixed place
[the previous 4 lines x2]
You became your own prophet
crossed the seven seas
nevertheless, your heart dried up inside
Why did that keep happening?
01 :06
رے کَبِیرَہ مان جا
رے فِقِیرَہ مان جا
آ جا تُجھ کو پکارے تیری پرچھائیاں
رے کَبِیرَہ مان جا
رے فِقِیرَہ مان جا
کیسا تُو ہے نِرْموہی کیسا ہرجائیا
Oh, great one, say yes!
Oh saintly one, say yes!
Come, your shadows are calling you back
Oh, great one, say yes!
Oh saintly one, say yes!
You are so detached and inconstant!
01 :59
ٹوٹی چارپائی وُہی
ٹھنڈی پروائی راستہ دیکھے
دُودْھوں کی مَلائی وُہی
مَِٹّی کی صُراحی راستہ دیکھے
[all stanza x2]
That very same broken cot
The cool easterly wind waits for you
That very same milk cream
The earthen water jug waits for you
[all stanza x2]
02 :42
کیسی تیری خود غَرَضی
لب نَمَک رمْے نہ مِصری
کیسی تیری خود غَرَضی
تجھے پرِیت پرانی بسری
مست مولا، مست قلندر
تُو ہوا کا ایک بَونْڈَر
بُجھ کے یوں اندر ہی اندر
کیوں رہ گیا 
What kind of selfishness of yours is this
(your) lips enjoy neither salt nor candy
What kind of selfishness of yours is this
you forgot old love
Oh, oblivious, carefree Lord
you are a whirlwind
(but) extinguished in such a way deep inside
Why did that keep happening?
03 :04
رے کَبِیرَہ مان جا
رے فِقِیرَہ مان جا
آ جا تُجھ کو پکارے تیری پرچھائیاں
رے کَبِیرَہ مان جا
رے فِقِیرَہ مان جا
کیسا تُو ہے نِرْموہی کیسا ہرجائیا
Oh, great one, say yes!
Oh saintly one, say yes!
Come, your shadows are calling you back
Oh, great one, say yes!
Oh saintly one, say yes!
You are so detached and inconstant!
