We know you-NERO
For you are, the people’s hero
You have stood in the right station
For the sake of your own nation
Your life’s a source of sledging boldness
What you have you offered in giving
Solid our life is-in your holiness’
Your way is a course to living

We saw arid in this country
But it now flow with milk and honey
You played fair in your game
That which has given us a name
Alas! We are a proud people 
 Virgin sings your name showing their dimple
Now we are in the time to nimble
Thus you are our seasoned man

With strength we matched to freedom
But death took you o! At Armageddon
Where can we put our face, where is our sun
We lost you in the night of our prom
How would I’ve listen to the sea
When I was feeling been free
Tears in my eyes drizzling
For you should be here-above o! You went
