We exult in the trilogy of hope:
Liberty, Independence, Republicanism.
Moulded in the fires of patriotism,
Our eager, ingenious hands hold
High the banner of nationhood.
But other hands, like termites,
Gnaw sullenly at the solid seeds sown
By the strength of our silent sinews!
As hate continues to parade impudently
In the cabaret of racism, vindictiveness,
Greed, and violence, forlorn furrows of
Grief converge upon the immense landscape
Of class, creed and colour without conscience!
Now, let the courage of truth, honesty
And trust guide us to the sanctity of
The brotherhood of man steeped in the
Majesty of respect, tolerance and the
Sacredness of love and eternal justice!
Let us banish forever the enemy, Hate,
Embrace the unifying force of Love,
Mould, build together, and forge ahead
On the steady, sturdy ship of responsibility,
Discipline and vigilance towards the
Auspicious port of peace, harmony,
Excellence and unity of purpose
In a true resurrection of Faith!
