Kenya National Anthem Lyrics

On 31st December 2007 – We posted these words during the dark days of the 2007/2008 Elections. Kenya has come a long way since. The healing must continue. As Kenya approaches Kenya Elections 2017, reflect on these words of prayer. (Words copyright and courtesy Government of Kenya)

Kiswahili                                           English

1                                        1


Ee Mungu nguvu yetu               O God of all creation

Ilete baraka kwetu                 Bless this our land and nation

Haki iwe ngao na mlinzi           Justice be our shield and defender

Natukae na undugu                   May we dwell in unity

Amani na uhuru                    Peace and liberty

Raha tupate na ustawi.            Plenty be found within our borders


2                                         2


Amkeni ndugu zetu                 Let one and all arise

Tufanye sote bidii                With hearts both strong and true

Nasi tujitoe kwa nguvu            Service be our earnest endeavour

Nchi yetu ya Kenya                 And our homeland of Kenya

Tunayoipenda                      Heritage of splendour

Tuwe tayari kuilinda              Firm may we stand to defend.


3                                          3


Natujenge taifa letu              Let all with one accord

Ee, ndio wajibu wetu              In common bond united

Kenya istahili heshima            Build this our nation together

Tuungane mikono                   And the glory of Kenya

Pamoja kazini                     The fruit of our labour

Kila siku tuwe na shukrani        Fill every heart with thanksgiving.
