Zambia National Anthem

Stand and sing of Zambia, proud and free,

Land of work and joy in unity,

Victors in the struggle for our rights,

We’ve won freedom’s fight.

All one, Strong and Free.

Africa is our own motherland.

Fashion’d with and blessed by God’s good hand,

Let us all her people join as one,

Brothers under the sun,

All one, Strong and Free.

One land and one nation is our cry,

Dignity and peace neath Zambia’s sky

Like our noble eagle in its flight,

Zambia, praise to thee.

All one, Strong and Free.


Praise be to God,

Praise be, praise be, praise be,

Bless our great nation,

Zambia, Zambia, Zambia

Free men we stand

Under the flag of our land

Zambia, praise to thee!

All one, Strong and Free


The tune of Zambia’s National Anthem is taken from the hymn

“Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika (meaning Lord Bless Africa), which was composed

by South African Enoch Sontonga in 1897. The lyrics were composed

after Zambia’s independence to reflect Zambia as opposed to referring to Africa

as a whole.
