MALAYSIA OUR DEAR MOTHERLAND
Malaysia our dear motherland
Bound by shores of golden sands
Green hills rising high, and
cooling breeze blowing by.
Blue rivers gently glide
Across forests far and wide
Land of bright and sunny skies
Awakens hopes rising high.
Ancient and charming is its tale
Malaysia we joyously hail.
Oh dear land our love we give.
Let's in peace and happiness live!
Lyrics by V. S. Param & Saroja Dev Param 1960s
