"March On, Bahamaland" (instrumental)

"March On, Bahamaland" is the national anthem of the Bahamas.


It was composed by Timothy Gibson as part of a national competition and was adopted in July 1973.[1]


Lift up your head to the rising sun, Bahamaland;
March on to glory, your bright banners waving high.
See how the world marks the manner of your bearing!
Pledge to excel through love and unity.

Pressing onward, march together
to a common loftier goal;
Steady sunward, tho' the weather
hide the wide and treachrous shoal.

Lift up your head to the rising sun, Bahamaland,
'Til the road you've trod lead unto your God,
March on, Bahamaland![2]
