The National Anthem and Pledge


The Ghana National Anthem and National Pledge also identify us as Ghanaians. The National Anthem is sung at all state functions, in our schools every day at assembly whilst the Pledge can be said or sung.



i. Words of the National Anthem:

            1. God bless our homeland Ghana

                And make our nation great and strong,

                Bold to defend forever

                The cause of Freedom and of Right,

                Fill our hearts with true humility,

                Make us cherish fearless honesty,

                And help us to resist oppressors’ rule

                With all our will and might forever more.


            2. Hail to the name, O Ghana,

                To thee we make our solemn vow;

                Steadfast to build together

                A nation strong in Unity,

                With our gifts of mind and strength of arm,

                Whether night or day, in mist or storm,

                In every need whate’er the call may be

                To serve thee, Ghana, now and ever more.


            3. Raise high the flag of Ghana,

                And one with Africa advance,

                Black Star of hope and honor

                To all who thirst for liberty.

                Where the banner of Ghana freely flies,

                May the way to freedom truly lie,

                Arise, arise, O sons of Ghanaland,

                And under God march on forever more.


ii. Words of the National Pledge

            I promise, on my honor

            To be faithful and loyal to Ghana

                        my motherland,

            I pledge myself to the service of

                        Ghana with all my strength

                        and with all my heart,

            I promise to hold in high esteem

                        our heritage, won for us

                        through the blood and toil

                        of our fathers,

            And I pledge myself to uphold

                        and defend the good name

                        of Ghana.

            So help me God.
