தமிழாக்கம்

அனைத்துளம் வெல்லும் அன்பு பயில்க
அன்நியர் தமையும் தன்நிகர் காண்க
போரினை விடுக போட்டியை விடுக
பிறனதைப் பறிக்கும் பிழை புரிந்தற்க
அனைத்துளம் வெல்லும் அன்பு பயில்க
அருள்வாய் புவித்தாய் காமதேனுவாய்
அப்பன் ஈசனோ அகில தயாபரன்
அடக்கம் , கொடை , அருள் பயிலுக மக்காள்
உலகினரெல்லம் உயர் நலம் உறுக!

English Version

Cultivate friendship which will conquer all hearts,
Look upon others as thyself,
Renounce war, Forswear Competition,
Give up aggression on others which is wrong,
Wide Mouth Earth, Our mother is
here, ready to give us all our desires
We have the Lord, our Father,
Compassionate to all
Ye Peoples of the world, restrain
yourself, give, be kind
May all people be happy and prosperous.
