Bringing possibilities of progress
And of realization!

We aspire for the truth and its triumph
O Truth, may thy reign come upon earth!

Let yesterday’s realization be a springboard
To leap forward for tomorrow’s achievement
Let us prepare ourselves for the new life!

A new light has appeared on Earth
The future is full of promise
Let the New Year be filled with love and joy!
