ಆವ ಕುಲವಾದಡೇನು? ಲಿಂಗವಿದ್ದವನೆ ಕುಲಜನು,
ಕುಲವನರಸುವರೆ ಶರಣರಲ್ಲಿ, ಜಾತಿಸಂಕರನಾದ ಬಳಿಕ?
ಒಕ್ಕುದಕೊಂಬೆನವರಲ್ಲಿ. ಕೂಸ ಕೊಡುವೆ,
ಕೂಡಲಸಂಗಮದೇವಾ, ನಂಬುವೆ ನಿಮ್ಮ ಶರಣನು - ಬಸವಣ್ಣ ಸವಸ

ಕುಲಛಲವ ಬಿಟ್ಟು ನಿಮ್ಮನೊಲಿಸಿದ ಶರಣರಿಗೆ
ತಲೆವಾಗುವೆ ನಾನು ಕುಲಜರೆಂದು.
ಬೆಬ್ಬನೆ ಬೆರತು ನಿಮ್ಮನೊಲಿಸಿದ ಶರಣರಿಗೆ
ತಲೆವಾಗದವನ ತಲೆ ಶೂಲದ ಮೇಲಣ ತಲೆ ಕಾಣಾ!

I bow to those Sharanas
Regarding them us high-born
Who pleased you by abandoning their caste?
O Ramanaatha
His head is on the gallows
Who does not bow to the Sharanas?
That pleased you by mingling freely with all!
