muse maher karo maherbaan;
karam karoge to sharam rahegi,
ham bando dosaari tu taar - mitthaa Shaah men 3

Aankhaladi Joi Joi Thaki - Translation A

Aankh laddi joi joi thaaki

Pir Fazal Shah

My eyes got tired in searching (the Lord, because of knowing) when my Lord will come (so that I could) bow down to his feet seeing Him present and drop down in salutation to the Dearest Lord. ...1

O sweet Lord! I remember Thy name. O Lord! I remember Thy name. O God! I remember Thy name.

O Lord! I am gripped in love with You since childhood. The Lord shall bestow 'Noor' if love is clutched. What do the foolish know? ...2
