National Anthem of Nigeria (1960-1978)

'Nigeria We Hail Thee' was the national anthem of Nigeria from 1960 to 1978 and now replaced with 'Arise, O Compatriots'. Lyrics: Nigeria, we hail thee, Our own dear native land, Though tribe and tongue may differ, In brotherhood we stand, Nigerians all, are proud to serve our sovereign motherland. Our flag shall be a symbol, That truth and justice reign, In peace or battle honoured, And this we count as gain To hand on to our children A banner without stain. O Lord of all creation, Grant this our one request Help us to build a nation Where no man is oppressed And so, with peace and plenty, Nigeria may be blessed.
