Daniel B. Warner


 

Liberia
All hail, Liberia, hail!

(repeat)

This glorious land of liberty
Shall long be ours.
Though new her name,
Green be her fame,
And mighty be her powers,

(repeat)

In joy and gladness
With our hearts united,
We'll shout the freedom
Of a race benighted,
Long live Liberia, happy land!
A home of glorious liberty,
By God's command!

(repeat last two sentences)


All hail, Liberia, hail!

(repeat)

In union strong success is sure 
We cannot fail!
With God above
Our rights to prove
We will o'er all prevail,

(repeat)

With heart and hand
Our country's cause defending
We'll meet the foe
With valour unpretending.

Long live Liberia, happy land!
A home of glorious liberty,
By God's command!

(repeat last two sentences)
