By Victor Emmanuel Uwah
May God bless my beloved countrymen,
Those with goodwill and sincerity filled,
Who, even when ruled by the worst of men,
Still aspire to a great nation build.
May God strengthen these countrymen’s resolve
That no matter the problem we may face
With determination they’ll try to solve,
Not minding what the unpatriotic says.
May God reward these countrymen indeed
Who have learnt not to be despondent when
We are forced even from dustbins to feed,
Encouraging yet other fellow men.
May God help these countrymen of mine whose
Patience and resilience have tested been
By the hardship in the land but who choose
To be truthful that good at last may win.
May God help my countrymen who have peace
And to diverse promptings refuse to fall,
That their love for fellow men needn’t cease
–I love these my countrymen, one and all!
