Unity against Colony

(Chin National Day)

We were born free before the colony
In the land of beauty and liberty;
Life had its own right and identity.
 
We were decreed after the colony
In the hands of levy and cavalry;
Life made its own sole no more history.
 
We there rallied against the colony
Like a band of voices in harmony;
Life bade its own men call for legacy.
 
We here come and sing as a family
To the land on the day of unity;
Life has its days of yore in memory.
 
We here keep the day, holy and merry
For the land we did stand and stand firmly;
Life makes its own day, national and free.
