Sailing to the coast of vision
With deep and silent sentiment
In favourable waves by the side
To uphold our country’s pride.
With the mast of the ship like flag fluttering
To reach where everyone dreams are fulfilled
With different cultures moving in same direction
For the ship to reach the destination.
Where people are fed with knowledge
And country moves forward as it age
Being the one to be proud to live on
And with our hopes shine.
