Fair Antigua and Barbuda! We thy sons and daughters stand Strong and firm in peace or danger To safeguard our native land We commit ourselves to building A true nation brave and free; Ever striving, ever seeking, Dwell in love and unity Raise the standard! Raise it boldly! Answer now to duty's call To the service of thy country, Sparing nothing, giving all; Gird your loins and join the battle 'Gainst fear, hate and poverty, Each endeavouring, all achieving, Live in peace where man is free. God of nations, let Thy blessings Fall upon this land of ours; Rain and sunshine ever sending, Fill her fields with crops and flowers; We her children do implore Thee, Give us strength, faith, loyalty, Never failing, all enduring To defend her liberty.
