We are the Khalsa!

We are the Khalsa!

Every Sunday the kids in Espanola, New Mexico have a short program near the end of Gurdwara where they sing a few songs in front of the sangat. Here is one of the regular songs… "We are the Khalsa!"

It starts out with…. "Strong as Steel, Steady as Stone…." and then goes into the words "We are the Khalsa, Mighty Mighty Khalsa, Everywhere we go, People want to Know…who we are….so we tell them…. WE ARE THE KHALSA".

 The song is based on old classic American sports anthem. You might find it in other venues, but I think it’s not as common as it once was. Someone way back in the 80’s or so simply replaced the name of their favorite sports team with "Khalsa" (something to be much more proud of) and the song stuck…and our kids have been singing it ever since :)
