The National Anthem (Ilolo Naijira Ayaotodu)

English

Etsako

Arise o Compatriots
Nigeria's call obey
To serve our father land
With love and strength and faith
The labour of our heroes past
Shall never be in vain
To serve with heart and might
One Nation bound in freedom
Peace and unity.
Kpakho o enimha kievho okpa
So, uvheghiemhi Naijiria
Na gbodibo ni oto ethamha
Bi uyemhi lagi afu lagi ruduo
Obia nitsi enekha naede
Ekha kia efo
Na thudu gi udafu gbodibo
Ayaoto okpa ne gbama ufeghemhi
Osa lagi usagbe.
O 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 height attain
To build a nation where peace
And justice shall reign.
O Oghena no fo agbo
The mha mie ughie enabo
Ene the mha khia, theamie ughie no dia
Thi ivhokha mha le ughiemho
Ne wo emhi uyemhi lagi ughiemhotso
Lagi ele tso lagi ughiemho
Mha mho Uyomhi no khua
Na ghi ayaoto, ebi osa
Lagi onitso za fe.
