The Sikh National Anthem

 

DEH SHIVA BAR MOHE IHA
Grant me this boon, 0, God, from thy greatness
SHUBH KARMAN TEY KABHU NA TAROON
May I never refrain from righteous acts,
NA DAROO AR SIYOO JAB JAH LAROO
May I fight without fear all foes in life's battle,
NISCHAI KAR APNE JEET KAROO
With confident courage claiming the victory'
AR SIKH HAO APNE HE MUN KO
May Thy glory be gained in my mind,
EH LALACH HAU GUN TAU UCHROO
And my highest ambition be singing thy praises
JAB AAV KI AUDH NIDHAAN BANAY
When this mortal reaches its limits,
AUT HE RAN ME TAB JOOJH MAROO
May I die fighting with limitless courage'


- GURU GOBIND SINGH
