Oh Uganda, Land of Beauty
National anthem of Uganda
|Lyrics||George Wilberforce Kakoma|
|Music||George Wilberforce Kakoma|
"Oh Uganda, May God uphold thee" is the Ugandan national anthem. It was adopted in 1962, with words and music by George Wilberforce Kakoma. The anthem is one of the shortest in the world, and is occasionally performed twice in a row to lengthen it.
Oh Uganda! May God uphold Thee We lay our future in thy hand United, free, for liberty Together we'll always stand.
Oh Uganda! The land of Freedom Our love and labour we give And with neighbours' all At our Country's call In peace and friendship, we'll live
Oh Uganda! The land that Feeds us By sun and fertile soil grown For our own dear land We'll always stand The Pearl of Africa's Crown
