Do you still remember,
The day when you don’t belong,
To the land of your own,
Do you still remember the hardships?
The hope and urge to be freed
From the dark clutches of colonialism...
Will you ever remember?
How our heroes achieved this freedom?
Will you bother to care?
About the endless sacrifices they made?
Will you even stop and ponder?
How they fought for our rights as a Malaysian..
With dignity and a truly blazing spirit...
52 years gone in a second..
And our Malaysia is still here..
Still standing proud
Soaring its splendid wings
I want you to know that,
This is the day we celebrate our independence,
The day we stand up high with pride,
This is the day we pray for the prosperity
and progress of our Nation,
May the harmony forever remain,
Let us continue the glory our heroes had gained,
Hand in hand, we fight for distinction,
Together, we stay united
In the spirit of goodwill
As one nation, One Malaysia,
I want you to stop for a second
The day we flew our flag of freedom from east to west,
With such courage, liberty and justice..
And I just want you to know that,
I am proud to be a Malaysian,
Where at least I know I’m free,
And I will never ever forget the sacrifices they made,
To give that right for me....
