RAM DAS PURI

He told us of the future and the times that lay ahead
And he spoke to us of troubles, and the darkness that would spread.
For a vision of tomorrow, we must plant the seeds today,
To build a holy temple where all can come and pray.
A place for all the pure ones to gather in His name.

In the heart of the country, there’s a land we call our own,
On which our hopes are planted, by the Guru’s love they’ll grow.
It’s the home of the Khalsa, where our future’s being born,
Stronghold of our nation, where the pure ones shall be sheltered by the blessings of the Lord.

Awaiting in New Mexico, lies the Guru’s land,
To be cared for, to be nurtured,
Where our children’s future stands.
Through our sweat and through our sacrifice, the vision will unfold,
Amidst a raging fire, will rise a nation bold,
Whose song will turn the wheel of time from iron into gold.

In the heart of the country, there’s a land we call our own,
On which our hopes are planted, by the Guru’s love they’ll grow.
It’s the home of the Khalsa, where our future’s being born,
Stronghold of our nation, where the pure ones shall be sheltered by the blessings of the Lord.

The time will come to heed the call,
And you’ll leave it all behind,
And you’ll come across the desert with the sunlight in your eyes,
And you’ll see up on the distance, lying there beneath the skies,
Spread across the mountains, your destination lies.
It’s the town of Ram Das Puri, it’s the Guru’s paradise.

In the heart of the country, there’s a land we call our own,
On which our hopes are planted by the Guru’s love they’ll grow.
It’s the home of the Khalsa, where our future’s being born,
Stronghold of our nation, where the pure ones shall be sheltered by the blessings of the Lord.

In the heart of the country, there’s a land we call our own,
On which our hopes are planted, by the Guru’s love they’ll grow.
It’s the home of the Khalsa, where our future’s being born,
Stronghold of our nation, where the pure ones shall be sheltered by the blessings of the Lord.
