Zambia National Anthem for Students

Stand and Sing of Zambia, Proud and Free” is the National Anthem of Zambia. The tune is taken from the hymn “Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika” (English: “Lord Bless Africa”), which was composed by South African Enoch Sontonga, in 1897. The lyrics were composed after Zambian independence to specifically reflect Zambia, as opposed to Sontonga’s lyrics which refer to Africa as a whole.

Zambia National Anthem in English:

1. Stand and sing of Zambia, proud and free,
Land of work and joy in unity,
Victors in the struggle for the right,
We have won freedom’s fight.
All one, strong and free.

2. Africa is our own motherland,
Fashion’d with and blessed by God’s good hand,
Let us all her people join as one,
Brothers under the sun.
All one, strong and free.

3. One land and one nation is our cry,
Dignity and peace ‘neath Zambia’s sky,
Like our noble eagle in its flight,
Zambia, praise to thee.
All one, strong and free.

Praise be to God. (Praise be, praise be, praise be,)
Bless our great nation, (Zambia, Zambia, Zambia.)
Free men we stand
Under the flag of our land.
Zambia, praise to thee!
All one, strong and free.
