Dunya School's Song

 My World

(to the little schoolchildren)

 

The wide horizon was aglow,

As the night was burning low,

Little golden arrows came

Shooting through my window pane.

 

Then the sun rose in the sky,

And all my world was filled with light.

Life can be just like a dream,

Like a fairy tale, it seems!

 

Let us love the earth so bright,

Be creative, read and write.

The surest way in coming times

Is to learn to use our minds!
