GHANA NATIONAL ANTHEM

August 6, 2020

God bless our homeland Ghana

And make our nation great and strong,

Bold to defend forever

The cause of Freedom and of Right;

Fill our hearts with true humility,

Make us cherish fearless honesty,

And help us to resist oppressors’ rule

With all our will and might for evermore.

Hail to thy name, O Ghana,

To thee we make our solemn vow:

Steadfast to build together

A nation strong in Unity;

With our gifts of mind and strength of arm,

Whether night or day,

In the midst of storm,

In every need,

whate’er the call may be,

To serve thee, Ghana,

Now and for evermore. 

Raise high the flag of Ghana

And one with Africa advance;

Black star of hope and honour

To all who thirst for liberty;

Where the banner of Ghana freely flies,

May the way to freedom truly lie

Arise, arise, O sons of Ghana land,

And under God march on for evermore!
