Ranasinghe Premadasa: Lion-Hero

Ranasinghe Premadasa, Ranasinghe Premadasa
Agyaner abichar andhiyar tumi nascha

Bravely you silence the darkness and injustice
of ignorance-night.

Ranasinghe, lion-hero in the battlefield,
You are Sri Lanka's promise-march,
perfection-shield.

Premadasa, self-giving server of love divine,
In the comity of nations your Himalayan deeds
shall shine.
