The Giant of Our Time


Big was the heart for his people

Huge was his influence as a leader

Tall was his stature as a principled statesman

Deep was his love for the nation that now cries.

Such was our Nation’s Father,

Lee Kuan Yew.

 

Born to lead

Aspired to serve

Determined to build

Committed to give of his best

Such was our Nation’s Father,

Lee Kuan Yew.

 

Dared to dream big and espouse a grand vision

Valued his comrades and harnessed their talents

Role-modeled and inspired their total commitment

Demanded integrity of all who serve the nation

Such was our Nation’s Father,

Lee Kuan Yew.

 

A man who gave his all

To build from scratch a nation that can stand tall

An exceptional architect and nation builder of the time

This even world leaders cannot refute or deny

Such was our Nation’s Father,

Lee Kuan Yew.
