To Ghana our hearts and souls belong, Our dreams of old and new Your sacred grounds receiving our libations, As you did our mothers and fathers. Hopes never faltering while heeding The wisdom of the Ancients... The sacred drums will beat As we feed from our mothers' breasts, While our fathers nurture our visions old and new Against all odds... With perseverance, trust, honesty Keen foresight and compassion We pledge our commitment To a prosperous and brighter future. So watch over our tomorrows Until you claim us back again Lest we forget, lest we perish.
Dedicated to The Ghanaian Students @ Cornell University Ithaca New York on The 49th Independence Celebration of The Republic Of Ghana March 4th 2006.
