Is desh ko pyaar buzurgo se

Yahan khud se pehle apne hain

Kartavya yahan pehle aata

Aur baad mein aate sapne hain

Bas yeh hi ek sandesh

Haan ghar mein rahega desh

Eikees din ka upvaas liye

Jeevan ki lambi saans liye

Seema rekha na todenge

Ek sanyam ek vishwas liye

Chalo mann ko dein aadesh

Haan ghar mein rahega desh

Sankalp naya ek karte hein

Chalo mil kar peeda harte hein

Is desh ke rehne wale toe

Har din hi tapasyaa karte hein
