Africa Unite

Africa Unite

Africa our soul
The land of mans’ birth
Divided yet whole
African man now covers the Earth
5oo million it can feed
And the Earth if in Peace
Divided in need
While the World steals its’ fleece
Africa in Union
As one Strength and Might
In Peace and in Union
Could put poverty to flight

Unite now as one and gain all that you can
Your daughter and son the richest of all man

Africa your future
Is in all of your hands
Your children to nurture
To rival all lands
Your millions divided
Still suffer the pains of the past
Your future must be united
For your prosperity to last
Africa you must now end
Your fear and self pride
Embrace all as your brother and friend
Share the riches and beauty you hide

No line on a map could hide the face of your brothers
Or history ever sap your joy and love for all others

Africa you now call
To every female and man
To remove every wall
To achieve all you can
Millions in individual beauty
Outshine all of the Earth
To eclipse the sun in your Unity
That is still at its’ birth
Africa you must defend
Ever individual you are
All hatred must now end
Unite and go far

A new line in the sand must never become
An excuse for any hand to take up the gun

Africa our soul
The blood of all men
United and whole
Rise above all again
Your millions will educate
The Earth to their power
To rise above any fate
And shine in any hour
Africa all your beauty still to be
The future is yours now to hold
United in Peace and truly free
Your fortune is favoured United and bold

Africa United in Peace and as in one
African Union released will outshine the Sun.
