  4. जीवन में कुछ करना है तो मन को मारे मत बैठो

    आगे-आगे बढ़ना है तो हिम्मत हारे मत बैठो ||

    चलने वाला मंज़िल पाता बैठा पीछे रहता है

    ठहरा पानी सड़ने लगता बहता निर्मल होता है

    पाँव मिले चलने की खातिर पाँव पसारे मत बैठो

    आगे-आगे बढ़ना है तो हिम्मत हारे मत बैठो ||

    तेज दौड़ने वाला खरहा कुछ पल चलकर हार गया

    धीरे-धीरे चलकर कछुआ देखो बाजी मार गया

    चलो कदम से कदम मिलाकर दूर किनारे मत बैठो

    आगे-आगे बढ़ना है तो हिम्मत हारे मत बैठो ||

    धरती चलती तारे चलते चाँद रात भर चलता है

    किरणों का उपहार बाँटने सूरज ऱोज़ निकलता है

    हवा चले तो महक बिखरे तुम भी प्यारे मत बैठो

    आगे-आगे बढ़ना है तो हिम्मत हारे मत बैठो ||
