ANTIGUA & BARBUDA NATIONAL ANTHEM

August 22, 2020

Fair Antigua and Barbuda

We thy sons and daughters stand

Strong and firm in peace or danger,

To safeguard our native land:

We commit ourselves to building

A true nation, brave and free!

Ever striving, ever seeking

Dwell in love and unity.

Raise the standard! Raise it boldly!

Answer now to duty call:

To the service of your country,

Sparing nothing giving all!

Gird your loins and join the battle

Gainst fear hate and poverty:

Each endeavouring, all achieving,

Live in peace where man is free!

God of nations, let thy blessing

Fall upon this land ours

Rain and sunshine ever sending

Fill her fields with crops and flowers:

We, her children do implore thee:

Give us strength, faith, loyalty:

Never failing, all enduringTo defend her liberty.
