Our own dear native land
Though tribes and tongues may differ
In brotherhood we stand

Our sovereign motherland
Our flag shall be a symbol
Of freedom and of might

In peace and unity we shall stand
And build a nation great and strong
Where justice shall reign supreme
And progress shall be our guide

Nigeria, we hail thee
Our own dear native land
Though tribes and tongues may differ
In brotherhood we stand"
