Verse 1:

Here we stand as a people
With one song: with one voice
We’re a nation: undivided and poised
We will take our stand: and build our land
With faith: to defend what we love

Here we are as a people
With one heart: for one cause
We’re determined: to rebuild and restore
Where freedom reigns: and truth prevails
A land where there’s hope for us all (2x)

(Chorus)
We’re all we have, we’ll defend our land
We believe in this nation, and we know we’ll get there
We’re all we have, we’ll defend our land
We believe in Nigeria and the promise she holds
And that one day we’ll shine like the sun
We’re a great nation

Verse 2:
Though we are many people
Different tribes: different tongues
We’re united in our strength and resolve
To uphold the honor of our land
And for generations to come

(Chorus)
We’re all we have, we’ll defend our land
We believe in this nation, and we know we’ll get there
We’re all we have, we’ll defend our land
We believe in Nigeria and the promise she holds
And that one day we’ll shine like the sun
We’re a great nation

We’re all we have, we’ll defend our land
We believe…
We’re all we have, we’ll defend our land
We believe…

We’re a great nation..

 Some people have said this song should be used as Nigeria’s second anthem, others mentioned that it should be sung during the presidential swearing-in ceremony, while most agree that it is a good song.
Good song, good content.

  1. […] We have to learn to start blaming others and start fixing issues from our end. We claim corruption is bad but every time we are in the exam hall, we are the first to start the cheating process. We cannot continue in our old ways and expect new results *it just doesn’t work that way*. We have to start with us. Let the change start from you and me, let’s start the change chain. If you have the power to make someone happy do it, the world needs more of that. A  line in the song Great Nation by Timi Dakolo says we’re all we have. Check out the lyrics to this song here. […]
