Warrior Movement
 
These are their considerations They agree to give their devotion and let their family wait action must be fast to make sure the people are safe
Their steps are brave warriors flaming passion avoiding worry fighting disaster and must win
Finding direction to determine victory For all of us Keep going Don’t give up
They move fast, swiftly They understood The meaning of devotion
They take hold of sacred tasks with warrior passions covid wouldnt come near Pandemic must be stopped
Their devotions are full of wisdom Their actions are like warriors

Bakti mereka dalam kesungguhan langkah mereka langkah pahlawan.
