GHANA'S ANTHEM

 

Composer: Untill March 6th 1957, Ghana continued to use the British Anthem. In the early morning of March 6'th 1957, as the Union Jack (British Flag )was lowered and the Red, Gold, Green flag of the newly independent country fluttered in the air over the National Assembly building.The country's new National Anthem was warbled by the teeming crowd. Upon a review made by a committee overseeing the selection of a new anthem for Ghana, Philip Gbeho's piece was chosen and adopted. His original lyrics are the ones marked B.i and ii. Till date, this has been the song that is sang by all Ghanaians during national ceremonies.

 

Lyrics

A) 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.


B (i) 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 m,
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.

B (ii) 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
