“Mevla seni eylesin muammer (Allah seni yaşatsın)
Ey şanlı Mücahid-i Muzaffer (Ey şanlı zafer kazanmış savaşçı)
Hamaset ve dehanın timsali mücessemi (Kahramanlık ve zekanın cismi sembolü)
Vatan-ı mukaddesimizin münci-i muazzamı (Kutsal vatanımızın büyük kurtarıcısı)
İsmet Paşa Hazretlerine, Türkiye Ermenilerinin takaddüme-i şükraniyesidir.”
