An Independence Blessing

Written by 

AN INDEPENDENCE BLESSING

AND NOW, NIGERIA, WE BLESS YOU

May the road You trudge on rise  up to meet You

May uguru of the  cold harmattan winds always be at Your back

And okochi’s burning mid-day sand be a coolant underYour feet

May the tropical sun caress Your beauteous face in gentle shine

While rains softly fall as velvety wool upon your fields

 And until we gather again to celebrate Your 57th

Fatherland, we bless You with renewed thrill

May God of Africa, the cradle of civilization and steadier earth

Hold You in the palm of His immovably almighty hands

That encircle millions of natives gathered against His breasts

And now, Nigeria, we consecrate You with renewed faith
