Title: South Sudan Oyee!
We praise and glorify you,
For your grace upon Cush,
The land of great warriors,
And origin of world’s civilization.
Arise, shine, raise your flag with the guiding star,
And sing songs of freedom with joy,
For peace, liberty and justice
Shall forever more reign.
Oh black warriors!
Let’s stand up in silence and respect,
Saluting millions of martyrs whose
Blood cemented our national foundation.
We vow to protect our nation.
Land of milk and honey and hardworking people,
Uphold us united in peace and harmony.
The Nile, valley, forests and mountains
Shall be our sources of joy and pride.
So Lord bless South Sudan!
It is not perfect, no likable by all, but who cares. Now let us give it a tune.
