Lobhe Pap Jani

Lobhe pap jani
Pape je maran hai
Tabu kena daki
Lobhe pran anginai
Din haye chira sukhi
Nai jar lobh
Tyag majhe kabhu
Nahi raje kona khobh

Translation

Greed begets sin;
Sin begets death.
I know this; yet I allow
Greed to enter into my heart’s core.
He is happy, really happy,
Who has conquered his outer greed,
Although he poverty-stricken.
He is really happy
Who becomes the God-message
of self-sacrifice.
