Mantra: Ode to Guru Gobind Singh

Complete Mantra:
He rode like a golden king, he rode the northern plains,
Champion to the weak and poor, to evil men their bane.
A mighty warrior gird in light, his faith became his shield,
and his voice rose like thunder across the battle field.
When he was but a child of nine, he learned to sacrifice.
The times called for a brave man’s head, his father gave his life.
From there he grew in consciousness of what his life was to be,
So young Gobind Rai became Guru Gobind Singh.

A new Man being born on this land,
Love springing forth from the earth,
Carrying a sword in his hand,
And the name as his only wealth.

Chorus
From the one he came, for truth he lived, until death he made his stand
For righteousness and freedom and the dignity of man.
For righteousness and freedom and the dignity of man.

To me, to God, his call went forth, to all sons of the land.
All you who would be soldier saints, and by God’s banner stand.
So fear no more, my children, I’ve come to bring peace to your lives.
You shall be known as the Pure Ones, who will fight in the face of the times.
You shall be known as the Pure Ones, who will die in the face of the times.
From now until 10,000 years, our banner will stand unfurled.
So pledge your heads to our destiny: Khalsa (pure ones) will rule the world.

Chorus
From the one he came, for truth he lived, ’til death he made his stand
For righteousness and freedom and the dignity of man.
For righteousness and freedom and the dignity of man.
From the one he came, for truth he lived, ’til death he made his stand
For righteousness and freedom and the dignity of man.
For righteousness and freedom and the dignity of man.
He rode like a golden King, throughout the northern plains.
And his voice rose like thunder, uttering the Lord’s Name,
Awakening every heart to the love of the One Unseen.
I make my life a sacrifice unto Guru Gobind Singh.
I make my life a sacrifice unto Guru Gobind Singh.
