I have not met you as strangers,

But friends I have not seen,

From faraway lands;

Destiny has brought you to Singapore,

To enrich our lives as we share:

Each of you has broadened my outlook,

Of lands and seas I have never been,

Of changing times in our global world;

I am amazed by your talents and contributions,

To our small country;

I hope you will experience and find,

Singapore is a home away from home,

And decide to make your roots here:

For I hate to say farewells and goodbyes,

To friends whom I hold so dear!
