Oh Africa


Alone  I stand  on  foreign  land,
My  home  is  here, my  heart  not  true,
Oh ! Africa, your soul  I crave.

Through  destiny,  my  pathway ‘s made,
Where eagles rest  on  mountain  peaks,
My  youth is  back to  heights I  seek,

with  winds  that  howl  to oceans  roar,
I  found  my  place  at  nature’s door
Oh  Africa ! my  sacred  place,
 I  share  your love  of  open  space,

My star  of  hope, it  rises  there,
My home  my country’s life I share
Savannas  health that  rivers  bring
In habitat of  the lion king
