Stand and sing of Zambia, proud and free,
Land of work and joy in unity,
Victors in the struggle for our rights,
We’ve won freedom’s fight.
All one, Strong and Free.

Fashion’d with and blessed by God’s good hand,
Let us all her people join as one,

Dignity and peace ‘neath Zambia’s sky,
Like our noble eagle in its flight,

Praise be, praise be, praise be,
Bless our great nation,
