Kenya's National Anthem

Please pray for Kenya as her citizens go to the polls on Monday, March 4th!

O God of all creation,

Bless this our land and nation.

Justice be our shield and defender,

May we dwell in unity,

Peace and liberty.

Plenty be found within our borders.

Let one and all arise

With hearts both strong and true.

Service be our earnest endeavor,

And our Homeland of Kenya,

Heritage of splendor,

Firm may we stand to defend.

Let all with one accord

In common bond united,

Build this our nation together,

And the glory of Kenya,

The fruit of our labor

Fill every heart with thanksgiving.

Black represents the majority of the people in Kenya. Red represents the blood shed during the struggle for freedom. Green represents Kenya's agriculture and natural resources. White represents unity and peace. The traditional Maasai shield symbolizes the defense of freedom.
