Excel thee amongst continents oh My Africa
The fine-art of living must prevail in this dome
For it’s a land flowing with milk and honey; My Eden! My Africa!
Yet I know bound to come are struggles we must overcome
Like hair strands on a head are innumerable; her resources is not among the least
Like eagle’s pride and elephant’s strength she tenders after her daisy
Traitors fear laying a siege on her ever-rich glory ‘cos in her anger she’s a beast!
No wonder screaming headlines of her challenges are overcome daily.
Surely inequality and stigmatization shall arise
Yet guarded by an ever-loving ‘Eledumare’ I feel secure
I am proud as an indigene of peace and unity, she birthed me; I am alive!
Like soldiers on battlefield with love and unity in diversity; we stand firm! I concur
We can never give up on her dreams for we are Africans
Until vision’s achieved; peace we preach to our fellow Africans!
