Even without a Kingdom, the Singhs are Forever Drunk with Power

ਸਭ ਦੇਸਨਿ ਕੇ ਬਿਖੈ ਪ੍ਰਕਾਸ਼ੇ ।

The Singhs have spread to all the countries of the world .

ਹੇਰਿ ਹੇਰਿ ਬਿਸਮਾਹਿਂ ਹਿਰਾਸੇ ।

The world looks and looks upon Singhs and are filled with fear

ਸ਼ਸਤ੍ਰ ਸਮੇਤ ਸਦਾ ਰੰਗ ਰਾਤੇ ।

The Singhs are forever imbued in love and adorned with weapons

ਬਿਨਾ ਰਾਜ ਰਾਜੇ ਨਿਤ ਮਾਤੇ ।

Even without a kingdom they are forever drunk with power

ਬਿਨ ਧਨ ਤੇ ਬਡ ਧਨੀ ਬਨੇ ਹੈਂ ।

Even without any money they recognize themselves as greatly wealthy

ਇਕ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਕੇ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਸਨੇ ਹੈਂ ।

They are fused with the one love of the True Guru
