Where the mind is without fear

Language: English after the Bangla (Bengali)

Where the mind is without fear 
and the head is held high; 
Where knowledge is free; 
Where the world has not 
been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic [walls]1; 
Where words come out from the depth of truth; 
Where tireless striving 
stretches its arms towards perfection; 
Where 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 ever-widening thought and action -- 
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, 
let my country awake.
