DAY 19 of 30
NATIONAL ANTHEM (Arise, O Compatriots)
Arise, O compatriots, Nigeria’s call obey
To serve our fatherland
With love and strength and faith
The labor of our heroes past
Shall never be in vain
To serve with heart and might
One nation bound in freedom, peace and unity.
Oh God of creation, direct our noble cause;
Guide our leaders right;
Help our Youth the truth to know
In love and honesty to grow
And living just and true
Great lofty heights attain
To build a nation where peace and justice shall reign.
Today while attending our business opportunity meeting with a couple of friends, I began to reflect on the
prayer which we usually have at the opening and beginning of every meeting, we always sing the second stanza of the National Anthem of our great country (The Federal Republic of Nigeria),My patriotic thoughts have prompted my post for today.
From my thoughts and reflection on the national anthem which was adopted in 1978,there are many lessons to be learnt, but i will mention a few.The first stanza is a call to action while the second stanza is a powerful prayer for any country that would be great and flourish. I personally believe in the greatness of Nigeria.
I learnt in this anthem that the call to action came before the prayer.The call to action is a call to responsibility and to show personal leadership that will lead to our greater good as a country. This informs that when we do what is in our own power to do as individuals and as a nation, God will always fulfill His own part.
We cannot put the cart before the horse. You need to do your own part, we all need to contribute our own quota of work and value for the greatness of our beloved countries and for the greater good of entire mankind.
God bless Nigeria (and the world at large)!
