National Anthem of Ghana

National Anthem of Ghana

God bless our homeland Ghana,
And make our nation great and strong,
Bold to defend forever
The cause of Freedom and of Right.
Fill our hearts with true humility
Make us cherish fearless honesty,
And help us to resist oppressors' rule
With all our will and might evermore.

Hail to thy name, O Ghana
To thee we make our solemn vow;
Steadfast to build together
A nation strong in Unity;
With our gifts of mind and strength of arm,
Whether night or day, in the midst of storm,
In every need whate'er the call may be,
To serve thee, Ghana, now and evermore.

Raise high the flag of Ghana,
And one with Africa advance;
Black star of hope and honor,
To all who thirst for liberty;
Where the banner of Ghana free flies,
May the way to freedom truly lie
Arise, arise, O sons of Ghanaland,
And under God march on forevermore.

History

The original words of the Ghanaian national anthem were adopted upon the independence of the country in 1957. Although, upon the declaration of a republic in 1960, the original words of the national anthem of Ghana was changed. With the overthrown of the government six years later and after a coup in 1966, the current lyrics were adopted. The master copy of Ghana's national anthem was composed by Philip Gbeho in 1957.

The present Ghanaian national anthem was first sung in 1966, where the people remember the hard battle they had to fight for their country and the ultimate freedom of the citizens.
