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.
