Jag Musaphir Jag Ghana Din

Jag musaphir jag ghana din, so liya re,

Awake, o traveler, awake! You have slept for many days.

Pehile soya mat garb me, unda pav pasar (2x)
Bhagti karke bahar aayo, bhul gyo Kartar janam tera ho liya re... Jag (etc.)

First you slept in your mother's womb with upturned legs spread out. After doing the devotion, you came out and forgot the Creator. Now you are born;

Duja soya pita god me, hans hans dant dikhae (2x)
Behen bhai tera kare lad re, mangalacharan gaye lad tera ho liya re... Jag (etc.)

Tija soya tiriya sej par, gale me baiya dal (2x)
Tiriya jal me fas gya bande, ye hai moh ka jal biyah tera ho liya re... Jag (etc.)

Chota soya buda banke, kone me khat ghalae (2x)

Panchve soe shamshano me, lambe pav pasar (2x)
Kahat Kabir suno re sadho, dina agni me dar dag tera ho liya re... Jag

Fifthly, you slept in the cremation ground with your legs stretched out. Kabir says, "Listen O Sadhu, putting your body in the fire you are burned; so awake, o traveler...
