"Arise, O Compatriots" (1978–present)


  Arise, O compatriots,
   Nigeria's call obey
   To serve our Fatherland
   With love and strength and faith.
   The labour of our heroes past
   Shall never be in vain,
   To serve with heart and might
   One nation bound in freedom, peace and unity.

   O God of creation
   Direct our noble cause
   Guide our leaders right
   Help our youth the truth to know
   In love and honesty to grow
   And living just and true
   Great lofty heights attain
   To build a nation where peace
   And justice shall reign.
