NIGERIAN NATIONAL ANTHEM

Last Updated on April 16, 2018 by Alabi M. S.

ENGLISH VERSION

1. Arise, O compatriots,

Nigeria’s call obey

To serve our fatherland

With love and strength and faith

The labour of our heroes past

Shall never be in vain

To serve with heart and might

One nation bound in freedom, peace and unity.

2. Oh God of creation, direct our noble cause

Guide our leader’s right

Help our youth the truth to know

In love and honesty to grow

And living just and true

Great lofty heights attain

To build a nation where peace and justice reign.

Otu ala jikolu onu na nnwere onwe

Udo na ịdị n’otu.

To defend her unity

And uphold her honour and glory
