UGANDA NATIONAL ANTHEM

August 6, 2020

English

Oh Uganda!

May God uphold thee,

We lay our future in thy hand.

United, free,

For liberty

Together we’ll always stand.

Oh Uganda!

The land of freedom,

Our love and labour we give

And with neighbours

At our country’s call

peace and friendship we’ll live.

Oh Uganda!

The land that feeds us

By sun and fertile soil grown.

For our own dear land

We’ll always stand

The Pearl of Africa’s Crown.
