Let My Country Awake
Where the mind is without fearand the head is held highWhere knowledge is freeWhere the world has not beenbroken up into fragments bynarrow domestic wallsWhere the words come out fromthe depth of truthWhere tireless striving stretchesits arms towards perfectionWhere the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit Where the mind is led forward by thee into everwidening thought and action Into that heaven of freedom, my Father,let my country awake.
