To the great country

We pay our homage

Let us all get together

And hear Bapu’s message

Hindu, Muslim, Sikh and Christian

Remember you all are Indians

Love, peace and equality

Was his message to humanity

Hear no evil, see no evil

Speak nothing untrue

‘Sathyameva Jayathe’

Should be your motto too

No one’s high nor anyone low

Let all barriers of caste be thrown

Let us treat all mean as equals

Who are God’s creations

Like me and you

Little children though we are

Let us pledge to the country

With Satya and Ahimsa as our theme

That we will fulfil Bapu’s dream.
