Today's Anthem


Oh! America we salute you
We are your shining stars
Boundless love flow among us
Fragrance of your soil
Permeating in our souls
Flying high in sky your eagles
Their faith never enfeebles
Melodies of serene breeze
The icons of enduring peace
All the faiths hand in hand
Marching towards universality
What a mighty team of geniality
Praise to you our Lord
The Protector and Resurrector
For fashioning our country
A true symbol of liberty
No way! You cannot terrify us
Oh! Vacillating evil
Thousands of times
Have not you tested us?

To war and arms I fly.
