O NIGERIAN YOUTH

‘Tis time we raise our voices
And shout from the rooftops
Let the earth hear and the ground, listen,
Let the birds sing our song of protests
Let the trees stand tall in salutation
Let the River Niger cry,
And River Benue weep,
For all of Nigeria has gathered
From North to South;
Even from the East and West
We cry for life, we cry to live
We cry to smile, we cry to be merry
We march as one; in unison we go

Listen! Listen! Hear Nigerian Youths rise –
To take a stand against injustice
To take a stand against societal ills
To take a stand against brutal killings
To take a stand against corruption
We stand on our knees,
And we stand on our feet
No more will we be silent
No more will we be tired
For a New Nigeria shall be born
As a phoenix, Nigeria shall rise
So stand tall, stand proud
O great Nigerian Youth
‘Tis your land; ’tis your nation
And cry till –
Justice and peace reign
O Nigerian Youth!
