God created the noble among the men to serve
Serve the society in all spheres they can observe
They formed the Movement Rotary International
Years hundred and eleven ago as a festival!
Principles noble, thoughts enlivening, services
Excellent-to all classes of society precious!
‘Four way test’ is not for Rotarians alone great
Universal application it is – a fine treat!
Great FOUR WAY TEST is here to put to us and pass
First “Is it the truth?” second “Is it fair to all concerned?”
Third “Will it build goodwill and better friendships?”
Fourth “Will it be beneficial to all concerned?”
Four way test in and for what and where
“The Four-Way Test” of the things we think, say or do.”
If we pass the test, peace and harmony bound to be
In the world and the society thrives and prospers true!
