O my motherland ! dearest of all lands,
High in the world you stand,
When others tried to conquer the world,
You stretched your arms of love to the world.
When human sacrifice claimed by Goddess of War,
You were there then to thwart,
When devility fluttered in the world,
You lit the Lamp of Nobility for the world.
Born were the great Souls for the world,
Bright stars who sparkled the world,
Blue waters of the ocean adore you,
Glory of the mountains adorn you.
O my motherland ! dearest of all lands !
( Composed on Nov. 2, 1973 )
