The National Anthem (Instrumental)

The National Anthem
Eternal Father bless our land,
Guard us with Thy Mighty Hand,
Keep us free from evil powers,
Be our light through countless hours.
To our Leaders, Great Defender,
Grant true wisdom from above.
Justice, Truth be ours forever,
Jamaica, Land we love.
Jamaica, Jamaica, Jamaica land we love.

Teach us true respect for all,
Stir response to duty’s call, strengthen us the weak to cherish,
Give us vision lest we perish.
Knowledge send us Heavenly Father,
Grant true wisdom from above.
Justice, Truth be ours forever,
Jamaica, land we love.
Jamaica, Jamaica, Jamaica land we love.

The National Pledge
Before God and all mankind, I pledge the love and loyalty of my heart,
the wisdom and courage of my mind, the strength and vigour of my body
in the service of my fellow citizens; I promise to stand up for Justice,
Brotherhood and Peace, to work diligently and creatively, to think generously
and honestly, so that Jamaica may, under God, increase in beauty, fellowship
and prosperity, and play her part in advancing the welfare of the whole human race.

The National Song: I Pledge My Heart
I pledge my heart forever
To serve with humble pride
This shining homeland, ever
So long as earth abide.

I pledge my heart, this island
As God and faith shall live
My work, my strength, my love and
My loyalty to give.

O green isle of the Indies,
Jamaica, strong and free,
Our vows and loyal promises
O heartland, ‘tis to Thee.
