Where the mind is without fear
        And the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into
        fagments by narrow domestic walls
Where words come from the depth of the truth,
Where tireless striving stretches its arms
        towards perfection,
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its
        way into the dreary desert sand of dead habits
Where the mind is led forward by Thee into
        ever-widening thought and action
Into that Heaven of freedom, my father,
        Let my country be awake.
