Save me! I have disobeyed You.
I have not practiced humility, righteousness or devotional worship;
I am proud and egotistical, and I have taken a crooked path. 1Pause
Believing this body to be immortal, I pampered it, but it is a fragile and perishable vessel.
Forgetting the Lord who formed, fashioned and embellished me,
I have become attached to another. 1
I am Your thief; I cannot be called holy. I have fallen at Your feet, seeking Your Sanctuary.
Says Kabeer, please listen to this prayer of mine,
O Lord; please do not send me sommons of the Messenger of Death. 26
