Long has been the struggle
In your just journey of Life
Moving ever so slowly but surely
Knowing that the elusive end
Is well worth every sacrifice
To achieve the ultimate aim of
Saving the nation’s soul from
And leading it increasingly towards a
New national harmony
Graced by a Malaysian majority
May this materialise in your lifetime, so
Press on, press on, as you see the finish line!
