Ho Jis Ke Jawanon Ki Khudi Soorat-e-Foulad
A nation whose youth are endowed with self as strong and hard as steel:
No need of piercing swords in war such people brave can ever feel.
Woh Alam-e-Majboor Hai, Tu Alam-e-Azad
The world of Pleiades and the Moon by natural laws is chained and bound;
Whereas the world in which you dwell owns insight, will and mind much sound.
Pinhan Jo Sadaf Mein Hai, Woh Doulat Hai Khudadad
What do the quivering waves imply, Save enormous zeal and zest for quest?
What lies concealed in mother shell is gift of God Who knows it best.
Pur Dam Hai Agar Tu To Nahin Khatra-e-Uftad
The hawk is never tired of flight, Does not drop gasping on the ground:
If unwearied it remains on wings, From huntersʹ dread is safe and sound.
