It was long long ago

When she was chained

From top to toe

Her children were enslaved

In barbarity that grew

Blood was oozing out

From North and South

From East and West

And they struggled

Until the atrocity was troubled

It was vigorously shaken

And the chains were broken

They fought with zeal

Until they could feel

Their last breathe

And just before their death

That last drop of blood

Dropped in glory and pride

To salute the mother

Who in agony cried;

She had lost her precious gems

And the nation salutes them

For their lives they gave away

For this freedom today

Though it was long ago

But with every year to go

We shall value their sacrifice

We shall fulfill their dream

In sovereignty and peace

The nation shall forever gleam!!
