You gave her birth
We’ll give her life
You gave her today’s
We’ll give her tomorrows

You gave her race
We’ll give her identity
You gave her heritage
We’ll give her future

You gave her possibilities
We’ll give her potentials
You gave her up
We’ll have to let go

You dream of her future
We’ll work hard for your dreams to come true
You gave her hope
We will too.
