ભક્તિ હિંડોળેના રે, માંહી ઝુલે આતમરામ;
પ્રેમ ભક્તિ હિંડોળેના રે, સબ સંતનકો વિશ્રામ ... ટેક
bhakti hiňdole-nā re, māňhi jhule ātam-rām
prem bhakti hiňdole-nā re, sab saňtan-ko vishrām ... repeat

ચાંદા સૂરજ દોઉ સ્થંભ રૂપે, બંક નાલ કી દોર;
ઝુલે રે પાંચ પ્યારીયાં રે, તહાં ઝુલત હૈં સિયામોર ... ૧
chāňdā suraj do-u sthambh rupe, baňk nāl ki dor
jhule re pāňch pyāri-yā re, tahaň jhulat hai siyā-mor ... 1

દ્વાદશ ગમકે અંતરે રે, જહાં અમૃત કો વાસ;
જેણે એ અમૃત ચાખ્યાં રે, સો ઠાકોર હમ દાસ ... ૨
dvā-dash gam-ke aňtare re, jahāň amrut ko vās
jene e amrut chākhyā re, so thākor ham dās ... 2

સ્હેજ શુન્ય કો નેહડો રે, ગગન મંડલ સિયામોર;
દોઉ રે કુલ હમ આગવી રે, હમ ઝુલે એહી હિંડોળે ... ૩
sahej shunya ko nehado re, gagan maňdal siyā-mor
do-u kul ham āgavi re, ham jhule ehi hiňdole ... 3

અરધ ઉરધ કે ગંગા જમુના, મોલ કમલા ઘાટ;
ષટ્ ચક્રકી ગાગરી રે, ત્રિવેણી સંગમ ઘાટ ... ૪
aradh uradh ke gaňgā jamunā, mol kamalā ghāt
shat chakra-ki gāgari re, triveni saňgam ghāt ... 4

નાદ બુંદકી નાવડી રે, રામ નામ ખેવનહાર;
કહે કબીર ગુણ ગાઇ લો રે, ગુરૂ ગમ ઉતરે પાર ... ૫
nād buňda-ki nāvadi re, rām nām khevan-hār
kahe kabir gun gā-ii lo re, guru gam u-tare pār ... 5

English Translation:
0. On a swing of devotion, our soul is swinging on spiritual wave;
Similarly, all saintly beings and sages too find solace on the swaying swing of devotion.  

1. Moon and Sun stands tall like pillars, and hammock tied with a rope of navel,
On this swings five loved ones1, also swing in joyful bliss, where the Supreme Soul dwells.

2. The house with twelve rooms, where divinity dwells, there resides heavenly blissful joy;
Whoever has tasted it, gets one with the Supreme Divine, whom we serve.

3. Love for realization void beyond is like an abode divine love where the Divinity dwells;
Where only we two dwell with divine love; swaying on the same swing of Supreme Divine.

4. Pious Ganga and Jamuna take in river-banks abound with Lotus flowers grown out of muck;
That’s akin to six mystical plexuses of body2 or a confluence of three streams of rivulets3.

5. Sailing in a boat of Sound as God, where name of Ram is Mariner of our boat of life;
He only can enable us fathom the ocean of life, that’s what Saint Kabir proclaims.
