Malaysia is our wonderland land of unique beauty,
None in the world, have this greatness of diversity,
A land of natural beauty, with all great gifts in plenty,
Let's make our country great, with our multi-racial unity.

Let us transcend, from religious fanaticism to humanism,
Like sisters and brothers, learn to live in humanitarianism,
We are all truly Malaysians, in the spirit of our patriotism,
Living together, as a nation of people, with true nationalism.

There is enough for all of us, in this land of plentiful bounty,
Only not enough for those, who live a life like those of a greedy,
Let us share and care for all Malaysians, who are needy,
Treat them all, as our own people, without any disparity.

Help the meek and the weak, irrespective of any race,
When you give and take genuinely, there's nothing to chase,
For there is plenty, for all and nothing to worry in any case,
When transparent governance, is our way in every phase.

Oppressors and aggressors in history, have ever never won,
Syria, Iraq and many more, have lost everything, in their pawn,
For emotions ruled them, when God's message of love, is all gone,
They had eyes, yet they stumbled and made their life forlorn.

Matured Malaysians we are, to make our life really wonderful,
Let us practice Self-Mastery, to make our life here, meaningful,
Together have peace and prosperity, to make our future beautiful,
Be a role model, for the world with this land, all really plentiful.

Pray for Self-Mastery of law and order for a Happy New Year Malaysia,
Strengthening, bonding us in our diversity, Happy New Year Malaysia,
Enlightening us to live like human beings, Happy New Year Malaysia,
To go beyond race and religion in true spirit, Happy New Year Malaysia!
