O’ my beloved country!
I’m extremely mortified
We all exploited you
In the name of ‘submissive will’

O’ onlookers!
O’ mute creatures!
Never forsake
The sanctity of your land

If you relinquish
The righteousness of this soil
You’ll be deprived of
All your laurels

Your esteem, reverence
And recognition
Is bind and intact
To your holy land

Again today
This land of pure
Whooping and shrieking
For its salvation

Come on! Bravo!
Take a step
The time is ripe enough
Let’s resuscitate
