Asa KI Vaar or Asa DI Vaar?

Over one of the recent weekends, I had the chance to listen to the wonderful Asa ki Vaar at a residence in California. Bhai Kultar Singh sang some shabads that we used to hear from his father, Bhai Avtar Singh. I had my iPhone with me so I recorded two of the shabads.

The first shabad is in Raag Bilawal, Prabh ji too mere praan adhaare:
