Here's presenting you the wordings of the national anthem of Kenya which is written in Kiswahili Language.

National Flag of Kenya


Ee Mungu nguvu yetu
Ilete baraka kwetu
Haki iwe ngao na mlinzi
Natukae na undugu
Amani na uhuru
Raha tupate na ustawi.

Amkeni ndugu zetu
Tufanye sote bidii
Nasi tujitoe kwa nguvu
Nchi yetu ya Kenya
Tunayoipenda
Tuwe tayari kuilinda.

Natujenge taifa letu
Ee, ndio wajibu wetu
Kenya istahili heshima
Tuungane mikono
Pamoja kazini
Kila siku tuwe na shukrani.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

English Translation

O God of all creation
Bless this our land and nation
Justice be our shield and defender
May we dwell in unity
Peace and liberty
Plenty be found within our borders.
Let one and all arise
With hearts both strong and true
Service be our earnest endeavour
And our homeland of Kenya
Heritage of splendour
Firm may we stand to defend.
Let all with one accord
In common bond united
Build this our nation together
And the glory of Kenya
The fruit of our labour
Fill every heart with thanksgiving.


A Brief Origin of the National Anthem of Kenya---

It's interesting to note that the government of Kenya formed a commission whereby the members were advised to integrate traditional Kenyan music in the anthem. The lyrics of the national anthem were written by Thomas Kalume, Graham Hyslop, Peter Kibukosya, Washington Omondi and George W. Senoga-Zake. The music was also composed by the same people who wrote the anthem. The lyrics of the song were designed to glorify the aims and aspirations of the people living there.

In this national song, special prayers and blessings are sought from God, the creator of this universe to bless the land of Kenya and defend it from any foreign attack. Emphasis is laid on unity, peace and liberty not only within the country but also with the neighboring countries. The national song of Kenya also focuses on the varied heritage of the country which forms an essential part of its identity. Thus, with due hard work and honest perseverance the nation can achieve great heights of success in the long run.
