Anthem Lyrics English

All hail, Liberia, hail! (All hail!)

All hail, Liberia, hail! (All hail!)

This glorious land of liberty

Shall long prevail.

Though new her name,

Green be her fame,

And mighty be her powers,

And mighty be her powers.

In joy and gladness

With our hearts united,

We'll shout the freedom

Of a race benighted,

Long live Liberia, happy land!

A home of glorious liberty,

By God's command!

A home of glorious liberty,

By God's command!

All hail, Liberia, hail! (All hail!)

All hail, Liberia, hail! (All hail!)

In union strong success is sure.

We cannot fail!

With God above

Our rights to prove,

We will o'er all prevail,

We will o'er all prevail!

With heart and hand our country's cause defending,

We'll meet the foe with valour unpretending.

Long live Liberia, happy land!

A home of glorious liberty,

By God's command!

A home of glorious liberty,

By God's command!
