NIGERIA MY HOMELAND

The fairest land among other earthly spot
She is blessed, dark and more beautiful than what other folks thought
Surrounded by numerous river for bath and food
Her shelve is seen with abundant oil to lubricate her food
Her tent is in the west pole with giant children of African black race
Call her name Nigeria, my homeland

Call her name Nigeria my homeland is fast pacing
The green pasture for the worlds continuous grazing
Nature never frown at her and her air is so refreshing
May her children that comes find caress that abolish pain
Call her name Nigeria, my homeland whose soil yields gain

Nigeria my homeland is filled with milk and honey
The salvage ground for those whose land is angry
May this land lay a bed for her babes rather than a hewn rocky cradle

Nigeria my homeland is calling on all to make love our final option
To raise our flag tall in the committee of other nations
With love strong chord Nigeria will never face confusion
Let build our land in unity instead of heart invasion
Let pride in our culture instead of hatred and too much commotion
Let make love our final option in building a great nation
