This mantra is the 30th pauri or step of the sacred prayer called Japji Sahib written by Guru Nanak.

lyrics

Complete Mantra::

Eka maa-ee jugat vi-aa-ee tin chaylay parvaan.
Ik sansaaree ik bhandaaree ik laa-ay deebaan.
Jiv tis bhaavai tivai chalaavai jiv hovai furmaan.
Oh vaykhai onaa nadar na aavai bahutaa ayhu vidaan.
Aadays tisai aadays.
Aad aneel anaad anaahat jug jug ayko vays.

Translation:

The One Divine Mother conceived and gave birth to the three deities.
One, the Creator of the World; One, the Sustainer; and One, the Destroyer.
He makes things happen according to the Pleasure of His Will. Such is His Celestial Order.
He watches over all, but none see Him. How wonderful this is!
I bow to Him, I humbly bow.
The Primal One, the Pure Light, without beginning, without end. Throughout all the ages, He is One and the Same.

"She, like Neko Case before her, mines allegories and fables for her songs, but Halstead isn't a cyclone. She floats and observes, almost achieving a spectral presence on her own songs." Stephen Thomas Erlewine - All Music Guide
