Africa, My Africa By Anele Obasih

Africa, My Africa

A continent carved out of glory

Enriched with fertile soil on which the world grow

Decked with bronze, embedded with gold, crowned with ivory

The greener pastures land, the land milk flourish and honey flow,

Africa! The land of lands, the mother of the lands

The cradle civilization took its first stand

A land of bounteous harvest: where the rain wet,

And the sunshine nurtures what we sow

Africa…my Africa…

A land where culture, heritage, tradition are ever flowing ripples

A relief for hospitality, a tabernacle for harmony and peace

With people of diverse culture, yet living and united as one people,

Africa! The jewel, God’s Golden Fleece

A land harboured by people of great favour and dreams

A land where great heroes were first raised

A land of hope where smiles and opportunity reflects its dimple!
