Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world had not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;
Where the words come out from the depths of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches it's arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost it's way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action-
Into that haven of freedom, my father, let my country awake!
