सुमिरन की सुधि यों करो, जैसे कामी काम।
एक पलक न बीसरै, निस दिन आठों याम।।
सुमिरन की सुधि यों करो, ज्यों सुरभी सुत माँहि।
कह कबीर चारो चरत, बिसरत कबहूँ नाँहि।।
सुमिरन की सुधि यों करो, जैसे दाम कंगाल।
कह कबीर बिसरे नहीं, पल-पल लेत सम्हाल।।
सुमिरनसों मन लाइये, जैसे नाद कुरंग।
कह कबीर बिसरे नहीं, प्रान तजै तेहि संग।।
सुमिरनसों मन लाइये, जैसे दीप पतंग।
प्रान तजै छिन एक में, जरत न मोड़े अंग।।
सुमिरनसों मन लाइये, जैसे कीट भिरंग।
कबीर बिसारे आपको, होय जाये तेहि रंग।।
सुमिरनसों मन लाइये, जैसे पानी मीन।
प्रान तजै पल बीछड़े, संत कबीर कह दीन।।
Remember God in the same way as a lover remembers his lady love, who is never out of his mind even for a moment during the twenty four hours of a day.
Fix your mind on God even as a cow has its thoughts fixed on the calf even while grazing in the forest and does not forget it even for a moment.
Think of God in the same way as a pauper thinks of the few farthings he has scraped together, which he counts every now and then and forgets not even for a moment.
Merger your thoughts in the remembrance of God just as the deer is absorbed in hearing the music of the lute, so much so that it never withdraws its mind from it and dies with it.
Develop attachment for remembrance similar to that which the moth has for the flame (the moth which burns itself to death but does not shrink from hugging the fire.
Concentrate your thoughts on God just as the insect is absorbed in the thoughts of the bee, so much so that it loses its identity and is transformed into the bee through intensive meditation.
Develop that love for remembrance which the fish has for water (the fish which cannot be bear a moment's separation from water and dies without it).

So also when an ignorant, bound and sorrow-stricken soul comes in contact with an illumined, liberated and all-blissful person, the former by such contact is fired with a zeal to become also like the latter.
