Lyrics

Lift every voice and sing

Till earth and heaven ring

Ring with the harmonies of liberty

Let our rejoicing rise

High as the list’ning skies

Let it resound loud as the rolling sea

Sing a song

Full of the faith that the dark past has taught us

Sing a song

Full of the hope that the present has brought us

Facing the rising sun

Of our new day begun

Let us march on till victory is won

Stony the road we trod

Bitter the chast’ning rod

Felt in the days when hope unborn had died

Yet with a steady beat

Have not our weary feet

Come to the place for which our parents sighed?

We have come

Over a way that with tears has been watered

We have come

Treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered

Out from the gloomy past

Till now we stand at last

Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast

God of our weary years

God of our silent tears

Thou who hast brought us thus far on the way

Thou who hast by thy might

Led us into the light

Keep us forever in the path, we pray

Lest our feet

Stray from the places, our God, where we met thee

Lest our hearts

Drunk with the wine of the world, we forget thee

Shadowed beneath thy hand

May we forever stand

True to our God, true to our native land
