Nigeria [Nigeria]

Memoir of your evergreen existence
Carved on the peak of your mountains
By the hands of ancient ancestries
In memory of your gleaming greatness

Magnate in resources among the nations
Clad in billowing garment of unique essence
Your scents muffle pure frankincense
Magnificent tower made of gold

The milk of your golden breasts traverse tastes
Honey flowing from your chest is salubrious
In you are found many waters teeming with life
Your name is proclaimed by foreign voices

Your untainted beauty transcend imagined paradises
In you champions are raised and buttressed
The remnants of war find repose in you
And you bestow upon them your largess
