NATIONAL ANTHEM OF GUYANA

 

Dear Land of Guyana, of rivers and plains

Made rich by the sunshine and lush by the rains

Set gem-like and fair between mountains and sea

Your children salute you, dear land of the free.

 

Green Land of Guyana, our heroes of yore,

Both bondsmen and free, laid their bones on your shore;

This soil so they hallowed, and from them are we

All sons of one mother, Guyana the free.

 

Great Land of Guyana, diverse though our strains,

We are born of their sacrifice, heirs of their pains;

And ours is the glory their eyes did not see

One land of six peoples, united and free.

 

Dear Land of Guyana, to you will we give

Our homage, our service, each day that we live

God guard you, great Mother, and make us to be

More worthy our heritage – land of the free.

THE NATIONAL PLEDGE
 
I pledge myself to honor always the Flag of Guyana, and to be loyal to my country, to be obedient to the laws of Guyana, to love my fellow citizens, and to dedicate my energies towards the happiness and prosperity of Guyana.

 
SONG OF THE REPUBLIC
 
From Pakaraima's peak of pow'r
To Courentyne's lush sands,
Her children pledge each faithful hour
To guard Guyana's lands.
To foil the shock of rude invader
Who'd violate her earth,
To cherish and defend forever
The State that gave them birth.
 
We'll forge a nation's might soul
Construct a nation's frame;
Freedom our everlasting goal,
Courage and truth our aim,
Unyielding in our quest for peace
Like ancient heroes brave,
To strive and strive and never cease
With Strength beyond the slave.
 
Guyana, climb the glorious perch
To fame, prosperity;
Join in the universal search
For world-wide comity.
Your people what soe'er their breed
Their hue or quality,
With one firm never changing creed
The nation's unity.
