Hi, Im looking for information about the national anthem of Zambia.
Who wrote the Zambian national anthem (lyrics and music)?
When was the national anthem of Zambia officially adopted?
Please add any valuable information like links to anthem’s mp3, video, lyrics, free sheet music etc.
The National anthem of Zambia is “Lumbanyeni Zambia” which means in English “Stand and Sing of Zambia, Proud and Free”.
Stand and sing for Zambia, proud and free,Land of work and joy in unity,Victors in the struggle for the right,We have won freedom’s fight.All one, strong and free.
Africa is our own motherland,Fashion’d with and blessed by God’s good hand,Let us all her people join as one,Brothers under the sun.All one, strong and free.
One land and one nation is our cry,Dignity and peace ‘neath Zambia’s sky,Like our noble eagle in its flight,Zambia, praise to thee.All one, strong and free.
Praise be to God,Praise be, praise be, praise be,Bless our great nation,Zambia, Zambia, Zambia.Free men we standUnder the flag of our land.Zambia, praise to thee!All one, strong and free.
