[Ancestral land, united stand]
[a #writco.in poem]

[Ancestral land, united stand ]

I dream of a place called United States of Africa
Oh God, bless Africa, land of our ancestors
Rise, shine, and fight ! I cry out loud !

I dream of a place called United States of Africa
A land of united nations, black skinned and proud.
Bees and birds singing sweet melodies.
Where lions roam freely, wild and unbound

Oh God, bless Africa, land of our ancestors
Home so dear,
God bless Africa
With unity and strength,
A land flowing with milk and honey

God bless Zimbabwe, we sing, "Ngaikomborerwe Nyika ye Zimbabwe"
God bless South Africa as well.
We cry, "Nkosi Sikelela iAfrika"
God bless Tanzania, we sing, "Mungu I Bariki Afrika."

I dream of a place called United States of Africa
Let's arise and shine Africa
Let's all shine like stars
Milk and honey abound,
Oh, African flag, to rise
Raise, the African flag,
Raise it on our ancestral land

God bless the land of our dark-skinned ancestors
I dream of a place called United States of Africa
