The Nigerian National Anthem lyrics


Verse 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.


Verse 2


Oh God of creation,

direct our noble cause

Guide thou our leaders right

Help our youth the truth to know

In love and honesty to grow

And living just and truth

Great lofty heights attain

To build a nation where peace

And justice shall reign


The Old National Anthem of Nigeria


Verse 1


Nigeria we hail thee

Our own dear native land

Though tribe and tongue may differ

In brotherhood we stand

Nigerians all and proud to serve our sovereign motherland


Verse 2


Our flag shall be a symbol

That truth and justice reign

In peace or battle honour

And this we count as gain

To pass unto our children

A banner without stain


Sandra Osamor sings the national anthem at The Voice


Verse 3


O God of all creation

Grant this our one request

Help us to build a nation

Where no man is oppressed

And so with peace and plenty

Nigeria may be blessed


The National Pledge of Nigeria


I pledge to Nigeria, my country

To be faithful, loyal, and honest

To serve Nigeria with all my strength

To defend her unity

And uphold her honor and glory

So help me God.
