Nigeria! The greatest of all

The giant of african world

Even despite all odds

Will endeavour to stand and never fall

You are te dearest mother have ever seen

You nuture to the best all your sons

Your potter never cease to amend your cracks and sinks

Your radiance makes others envious for no reason

Despite being at the West, you stand as the giant of Africa

Bordering the North Atlantic Ocean at the rear

You sit between Benin and Cameroon with pride

And you radiate with glory like the sun in the sky

The great milk of Niger and Benue flows from your breast to the rests

And white monkeys came to devour your garden from different heights

But thanks to your great knights

Who saved you from the dark to the light

When you stand and choose never to be a lame

Then they try to shift the blame

And say it was all just a game

Then dave you a new name, whic starts your great fame

You were given independence on October 1st, 1960

Which gave you the more popularity

You chose "Abuja" as capital for more clearity

And divided your endownmnts into 36 with alacrity

In no time you started to grow

I can't cease to wonder the extent of your flow

Despite having over hundred million of children, you still kept on the glow

With perfection you grouped your endownments ethnicly into 3 (Hausa, Yoruba and Igbo)

I see you among all as a rear gem

Despite all troub's and problem

You stood and stayed firm

Forever will I sing your praise and anthem

Arise, O compatriots, Nigeria's call obey

To serve our father land with love, strength and faith (everyday)

The labour of our heeroes past

Shall never be in vain, to serve with heart and might

One nation bound in freedom, peace and unity

We pray, O God of creation to direct our noble cause (with pity)

Guide thou our leaders right and help our youth the truth to know

In love and honesty to grow

Living just and true in great lofty heigths attain

To build a nation where peace and justice reign

We pledge to thee to be faithful, loyal and honest

And serve ye with all thy strength

Defend in unity and always uphold

Your honour and forever glory

God bless my country

God bless NIGERIA ... !
