Where the mind is without fear
and the head is held high;

Where knowledge is free;

Where the world has not been broken up
into fragments by narrow domestic walls;

Where words come out from the depth of truth;

Where tireless striving stretches its arms toward perfection;

Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;

Where the mind is led forward by Thee
into ever-widening thought and action —

Into that heaven of freedom,
my Father, let my country awake.

where the mind is without fear - rabindranath tagore
From Gitanjali (Song Offerings) by Rabindranath Tagore.
Translated from Bengali to English by the author circa 1911.
Original poem titled, "Indian Prayer."
