True Is the Lord
True is the Lord, true is his Name,
and infinite are the expressions of his love.
All living beings pray: “Give, give,”
and the Giver goes on showering his gifts.
What then could we offer him
for a glimpse of his court?
What words could we utter
that would move him to love us?
In the ambrosial hours of early dawn,
meditate on the true Name,
and reflect on his greatness.
Through past actions
we attain the robe of the human form
through grace, the door to liberation.
Thus we come to realize, O Nanak,
that the true One is all there is.
