Students Singing the National Anthem

Stanza 1:

Arise, O compatriots.

Nigeria’s call obey

To serve our fathers land

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.

Stanza 2:

Oh! God of Creation,

Direct our noble course

Guide our leaders’ right

Help out youths 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.
