The National Anthem

THE NATIONAL ANTHEM


High we exalt thee realm of the free
Great is the love we have for thee
Firmly United, ever we stand
Singing thy praise, Oh native land.

We raise up our hearts and voices on high
The hills and valleys re-echo our cry
Blessings and peace be ever thine own
Land that we love, our Sierra Leone.

One with a faith that wisdom inspires
One with a Zeal that never tires
Ever we seek to honour thy name
Ours is the labour, thine the fame

We pray that no harm on thy children may fall.
That blessings and peace may descend on us all;
So ,ay we serve thee ever alone
Land that we love, Our Sierra Leone.

Knowledge and truth our forefathers spread
Mighty the nations whom they led
Mighty they made thee, so too may we
Show forth the good that is ever in thee.

We pledge our devotion, Our strength and our might
Thy cause to defend and to stand for thy right
Land that we love, Our Sierra Leone.
