I have the heart of a citizen
An emblem of my country i’ve always been
Hence happiness is what i’ll always get
Because for patriotism i’m always set
Surely! I hold my motherland so dear
Behold! I shall go all out for her
When the pain of heat the sun perpetuates
My nation,affectionately offers me a shade.
Sacrifice is at the hearts of you and I
As the clock ticks and the days go by
Born and bred here in Ghana
I’ve always regarded this a singular honor
Patriotism has given me the will to die
on my own sand
It is the value that has crafted me as
a picture of a loyal fad
It is a quality that has uprooted terrorism
Here J am,full of a blazing patriotism.
I recall our gallant soldiers of years gone by
And how for this country they wished to die
With guns strapped to their belts and grenades
They represented their country by taking a stand.
O citizen,service for our motherland,sacrificing thus
Because the welfare of Ghana shall live with us
Look there! the citizens band play the national
anthem at the front of the parade
In every discipline,they have done our nation proud
The national flags are waving and the citizens
cheer them loud.
As I sit on my couch and lay my hand over my heart
I intend a patriotic prayer with all my heart
Heavenly God! Help me always to understand
That patriotism goes further than the love of my homeland.
