First stanza

hItornal Faada, bles wi lan,
Giaad wi wid Dai maiti an,
Kip wi frii frahn hiivl powa,
Bi wi lait chruu kountles howa.
Tu wi Liidaz, Griet Difenda,

Jostis, Chuut fi wi fieba,

Jumieka, Jumieka, Jumieka, lan wi lob.

Second stanza

Laan wi chuu rispek fi haal,
Tor rispans tu juuti kaal,
Chrentn wi di wiik fi cherish,
Gi wi vijan les wi perish.
Nalij sen wi Ebnli Faada,
Grant chuu wizdam fram abov.
Jostis, Chuut fi wi fieba,
Jumieka, lan wi lob.
Jumieka, Jumieka, Jumieka, lan wi lob.


English Lyrics


First stanza

Eternal Father bless our land
Guard us with Thy mighty hand
Keep us free from evil powers
Be our light through countless hours
To our leaders, Great Defender,
Grant true wisdom from above
Justice, truth be ours forever
Jamaica, land we love
Jamaica, Jamaica, Jamaica, land we love.

Second stanza

Teach us true respect for all
Stir response to duty’s call
Strengthen us the weak to cherish
Give us vision lest we perish
Knowledge send us, Heavenly Father,
Grant true wisdom from above
Justice, truth be ours forever
Jamaica, land we love
Jamaica, Jamaica, Jamaica, land we love.
