A Clarion Call


Let us have hope
for the morrow,
and be free
from all sorrow.
Working day & night,
and doing only what's right!
Ensuring Peace and Prosperity
across our Motherland.

A single Nation
united as one,
61 years since,
Independence was won.
The duty we owe
is to salvage our land,
inspite of strife,
and mischievous hands.

A mighty loud roar,
to the forces of good;
who fight evil and pain
and deliver us again..
Conflicts overcome,
tranquility will be won;
with Unity and Love,
A Blessing from Above.

'United, we stand,
Divided, we fall'! '
A struggle against violence
and not against love.
May the land flourish
and may God give us a Hand,
Let Sri Lanka live
Like no other Land!

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
