Courage Biafra!

O Biafra! Land of the rising sun
I love and cherish all about you
You are destined for greatness
Because you are the chosen race, your wives, husbands and children were killed unjustly

Cry until the vision of your past suffering is washed out
Cry until what made you sad never returns
Allow the tears of humiliation drop from your eyes
Allow the water to wash off your past memories forever

Never give up on your struggles for liberation
Work hard to earn your freedom
Your freedom will help other nations to gain liberation
Remember, only God can lead you in this journey

Think of your past but never dwell on it
Think of your present and struggle for better opportunities
Indeed, your today holds the key of tomorrow
Be brave great Biafra! Never lose hope

Courage! great Biafra
Carry on the armour of your victory
For you have been consecrated by Chukwu okike abiama
To lead us to the promised land

Great Biafra! my fatherland
Never mind other people’s opinion of you
Don’t look down on yourself
You shall emerge triumphant from this ordeal

Rejoice and be glad, o Biafrans
For the Lord who lifted up will not let you down
May you continue to shine like the rising sun
You have been favoured by Chukwu okike abiama
