The Dignity of
On The 49th Independence Celebration
The Republic Of Ghana March 4th 2006.
By Rev P E Adotey Addo
To Ghana our hearts and souls
belong, our dreams of old and new.
Your sacred grounds receiving our
libations as you did our mothers and fathers.
Hopes never faltering while heeding
the wisdom of the ancients.
The sacred drums will beat as we
feed from our mothers’ breasts
While our fathers nurture our
visions old and new against all odds.
With perseverance, trust, honesty,
keen foresight and compassion
We pledge our commitment to a
prosperous and brighter future.
So watch over our tomorrows until
you claim us back again
Lest we forget, lest we perish.
