I rise and pray for green-white-green
To be free from flaws, from top to bottom
To unite in progress and not in regret
To flag on the credible as public servants
I rise and pray for dear diversified tongues
To seal and cascade in the ivory of oneness
That nation can be born and bloom
I rise and pray for this aging land
To soil on in the river of peace
That her seeds will live and live
I rise and pray for this giant nativity
On her 54 turns on earth.
Happy Birthday Nigeria at 54
