    Translated into English the Lavan quartet or the Sikh epithalamium would read~~~

    First Lavan~~~

    By the first nuptial circuiting The Lord sheweth ye His
    Ordinance for the daily duties of wedded life
    The Scriptures are the Word of the Lord,
    Learn righteousness, through them,
    And the Lord will free ye from sin.
    Hold fast to righteousness,
    Contemplate the Name of the Lord,
    Fixing it in your memory as the scriptures have prescribed.
    Devote yourselves to the Perfect and True Guru.
    And all your sins shall depart.
    Fortunate are those whose minds
    Are imbued with the sweetness of His Name,
    To them happiness comes without effort;
    The slave Nanak proclaimeth
    That in the first circling
    The marriage rite hath begun.nuptial

    Second Lavan~~~

    By the second circumambulation
    Ye are to understand that the Lord
    Hath caused ye to meet the True Guru,
    The fear in your hearts has departed;
    The filth of selfness in your minds is washed away,
    By having the fear of God and by singing His praises
    I stand before Him with reverence, The Lord God is the soul of the universe!
    There is naught that He doth not pervade.
    Within us and without, there is One God only;
    In the company of saints
    Then are heard the songs of rejoicing.
    The slave Nanak proclaimeth
    That in the second circling
    Divine Music is heard.

    Third Lavan~~~

    In the third roundabout
    There is a longing for the Lord
    And detachment from the world.
    In the company of the saints,
    By our great good fortune,
    We encounter the Lord.
    The Lord is found in His purit
    Through His exaltation,
    Through the singing of His hymns.
    By great good fortune we have risen.
    In the company of the saints
    Wherein is told the story
    Of the Ineffable Lord.
    The Holy Name echoes in the heart:
    Echoes and absorbs us.
    We repeat the Name of the Lord,
    Being blessed by a fortunate destiny
    Written from of old on our foreheads.
    The slave Nanak proclaimeth
    That in the third circling
    The love of God has been awakened in the heart.

    Fourth Lavan~~~

    In the fourth walk-around
    The mind reaches to knowledge of the Divine
    And God is innerly grasped:
    Through the Grace of the Guru
    We have attained with ease to the Lord;
    The sweetness of the Beloved
    Pervades us, body and soul.
    Dear and pleasing is the Lord to us:
    Night and day our minds are fixed on Him.
    By exalting the Lord
    We have attained the Lord:
    The fruit our hearts desired;
    The Beloved has finished His work.
    The soul, the spouse, delighteth in the Beloved’s Name.
    Felicitations fill our minds;
    The Name rings in our hearts:
    The Lord God is united with His Holy Bride.
    The heart of the Bride flowers with His Name.
    The slave Nanak proclaimeth
    That in the fourth circling
    We have found the Eternal Lord. (SGGS 773 -74)

    Jai Sai Ram~~~
