MoA Charter




 First Stanza

God bless our Homeland Ghana
And make our nation great and strong,
Bold to defend forever
The cause of Freedom and of Right;
Fill our hearts with true humility,
Make us cherish fearless honesty,
And help us resist oppressors rule
With all our will and might for evermore

Second Stanza
Hail to thy name, O Ghana
To thee we make our solemn vow:
Steadfast to build together
A nation strong in Unity;
With our gifts of mind and strength of arm,
Whether night or day, in the midst of storm,
In every need, whate’ er the call may be,
To serve thee, Ghana, now and evermore.

Third Stanza
Raise high the flag of Ghana
And one with Africa advance
Black star of hope and honor
To all who thirst for liberty;
Where the banner of Ghana freely flies,
May the way to freedom truly lie;
Arise, arise, O sons of Ghana land
And under God march on for evermore!


Composer: Mr. Philip Comi Gbeho
