When the earth is in distress,
It attunes itself with love
And sends out a prayer.
The True One hears it,
And with total ease
Is pleased to give Its strength and steadiness.
It sends a command to the Power of Rain,
And the rain pours down in torrents.
The wealth of grain and corn grows thick.
A person cannot describe its value.
Oh Naanak, appreciate the Divine Identity.
You, Divine One, cause the life-giving food to be given to all the creatures.
Eating this, peace grows,
And the cycle of pain
Comes no more.
