Happy birthday Nigeria! Happy Independence day Everyone!

This is the 52nd Year

Independence came on Nigeria’s throne

And in the 52 years

We have learnt, known and understood

That what is worth having

Is worth standing for and holding onto

We’ve also learnt that tomorrow starts today

We’ve learnt to struggle for good causes

This is the 52nd year

We’ve had wonderful moments

We’ve had jubilant moments

We’ve also had some not-so wonderful ones

Still we’ve pulled together in unity

And we celebrate all these moments

In hope, working towards our dreams and goals

For the Nigeria we love

Happy birthday Nigeria

Happy Independence day everyone


May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
