Here is some information on it from Yogi Bhajan:

To Heal the Wounds of Love and Gain the Power of Ultimate Love

The secret of Shabad Hazare:

This meditation can be done alone or recited with a group. It is a very old secret of gurmat--the way of living given by the Sikh masters. The essence of this is to use the Naad in Shabd Hazare to reshape the electromagnetic aura to reflect the perfect relationship within one’s Self and with the Infinite/Soul that is ultimate love. Normally the radiant body reflects all our commotions and all the pains of the present and past loves. It has all of our current stories, our history of defenses and automatic reactions in relationships. By merging into the energetic patterns of these sounds we clear and align our projection and flow to be present, authentic and ready for strong relationships and the power of ultimate love.

These sounds are mantras – verses written in the form of letters between Guru Arjan, the fifth guru, and Guru Ram Das, the fourth. There was perfect longing, love and fulfillment in the sentiments, feelings and projection of these letters. Repeating these mantras takes you out of the normal internal chatter and emotional games of the mind we usually live with. It purifies, aligns and strengthens.

MAAJH -Fifth Mehl - Chaupadas - First House:

1. My mind longs for the blessed vision of the Guru's Darshan. It cries out like the thirsty songbird. My thirst is not quenched, and I can find no peace, without the Blessed Vision of the Beloved Saint. I am a sacrifice, my soul is a sacrifice unto the Blessed Vision of the Beloved Saint Guru.

2. Your face is so beautiful and the sound of your words imparts Divine Wisdom. It is so long since this sparrow hawk has had even a glimpse of water. Blessed is that land where you dwell, Oh my friend and Intimate Divine Guru. I am a sacrifice, I am forever a sacrifice unto my friend and my Intimate Divine Guru.

3. When, for a single moment, I could not be with You, the Dark Age of the Kali Yuga dawned for me. When shall I meet You, Oh my Beloved Lord? I cannot endure the night and sleep does not come, without the sight of the Beloved Guru's court. I am a sacrifice, my soul is a sacrifice, unto the True Court of the Beloved Guru.

4. By good fortune I have met the Saint Guru. I have found the Immortal Lord within my own home, my self. I will now serve You forever, and I shall not be separated from You even for an instant. Servant Nanak is Your slave, Oh my Beloved Master. I am a sacrifice, my soul is a sacrifice; servant Nanak is Your slave, Oh Lord.
