In the world's broad field of battle,<ब्र/>In the bivouac of Life,<ब्र/>Be not dumb, driven cattle!<ब्र/>Be a hero in the strife!<प>Let us, then, be up and doing,<ब्र/>With a heart for any fate;<ब्र/>Still achieving, still pursuing,<ब्र/>Learn to labor and to wait.<प>Not enjoyment, and not sorrow,<ब्र/>Is our destined end or way;<ब्र/>But to act, that each tomorrow<ब्र/>Find us farther than today.<प>Let us, then, be up and doing...

Lives of great men all remind us<ब्र/>We can make our lives sublime,<ब्र/>And, departing, leave behind us<ब्र/>Footprints on the sands of time;<प>Footprints, that perhaps another,<ब्र/>Sailing o'er life's solemn main,<ब्र/>A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,<ब्र/>Seeing, shall take heart again<प>Let us, then, be up and doing...

			 % Comments: The film 'Duniya Na Manne' was also made in
% Marathi under the name - KUNKU. This is one of the
% earliest English songs used in a Hindi film. Quite likely,
% the tune has been borrowed.
