English lyrics[edit]

All hail, Liberia, hail!
All hail, Liberia, hail!

This glorious land of liberty
Shall long be ours.

Though new her name,
Green be her fame,
And mighty be her powers,

Though new her name,
Green be her fame,
And mighty be her powers,

And mighty be her powers,
And mighty be her powers,

In joy and gladness
With our hearts united,
We'll shout the freedom
Of a race benighted,
Long live Liberia, happy land!
A home of glorious liberty,
By God's command!
A home of glorious liberty,
By God's command!

All hail, Liberia, hail!
All hail, Liberia, hail!

In union strong success is sure
We cannot fail!
With God above
Our rights to prove

We will o'er all prevail,
We will o'er all prevail,
We will o'er all prevail,

With heart and hand
Our country's cause defending
We'll meet the foe
With valor unpretending.

Long live Liberia, happy land!
A home of glorious liberty,
By God's command!
A home of glorious liberty,
By God's command![1][2]
