Possessing billions of people with her spirit
Of love and togetherness unalloyed,
Of resilience and strength unparalleled,
Of creativity and adeptness unfolding in powerful measures.
And a song –with resounding melodies of passion and loyalty,
A song we all sing; a song we all dance to.
Sounds that keep us alive –the Kora, the Kalimba, the talking drum...
Stories they tell; a great future they speak of.
Her black colour –the greatest wealth earth knows–
Bold, fierce, and beautiful
She wears with pride and valour.
She is golden! She is AFRICA!
