If INTRODUCTION This hook of Puran Singh spoems is the latest offspring from a famous old root. It is founded on the Granth Sahiby and most of the songs that follow are in one way or another derived from that inspired book, which has sometimes been called theS ikh Bible. But as that is the youngest of the bibles, so these songs and lyrics are re-charged, we shall find, by the spirit of youth in poesy. It may be that the ideas, images and figurative expressions in these poems are often openly borrowed, and a fairly close transcript of certain passages may even at times be given. But whether the rendering be close or free, the religious emotion is always in essence the same, and it is always authentic. It runs right through the songs from beginning to end, and no reader can fail to be touched by its sincerity, grace and fervour. English versions of the Granth Sahib have already been given to the public in the six volumes of Mr. M. A. Macauliffe sremarkable work on The Sikh Religion and with his versions any reader who likes can compare Mr. Puran Singh spoems, and will find the comparison most interesting.
