THE BAHAMIAN NATIONAL ANTHEM – “MARCH ON, BAHAMALAND” BY ANGELIQUE SABRINA
“MARCH ON, BAHAMALAND”
Bahamian National Anthem
Composed by the late, Timothy Gibson
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.
(Source: Lyrics of “March On, Bahamaland” on Bahamas.gov.bs)
“God-devotion makes a country strong;
God-avoidance leaves people weak.”
(Proverbs 14:34 – The Message Bible)
Father may Your Kingdom come and Your will be done on earth in the Bahamas as it is in heaven….Amen.
