Ghana, More Than A Home

I come from the west
Not of the world
But of Africa
Rich in culture
Blessed with beautiful women
I come from blood, and gold, and green
An emblem of love, riches and harmony
I come from the black star
It echoes hope in the doldrums of despair
Bless the gods, I was made here
They call it a country
I call it home
They call its people citizens
I call them family
Blessed with humor
They say she’s a warrior king
I say she’s a mother
She feeds her young ones
She trades power for peace
Above all, a gateway to hope
I come from one, but we are ten
Ten in one, the trinity must envy
I speak just one, but there are many
A sense of diversity in unity
And unity in strength
Hail the words of our anthem
God bless our homeland
Make our nation great and strong….
Fill our hearts with true humility
Make us cherish fearless honesty
The beauty of the sun up north
The breeze in the south
The greens sandwiched in between
There’s nothing more beautiful
It’s just breathtaking
But there’s a charge to keep
A home to keep building
That part of the bridge to fix
That brother to lend a hand
And that prodigal son to bring home
I have a dream of a home
A home without tribes
I have a dream of a home
With men and women
Full of fearless honesty
So wherever you are
North or South, East or West
Let’s all join with Amu
And sing for the world to hear
“Yɛn ara asaase ni
Ɛyɛ aboɔden de ma yɛn
Mogya a nananom hwie gui
Nya de too hɔ maa yɛn
Aduru me ne wo nso
Sɛ yɛbɛyɛ bi atoa so
Nimdeɛ ntraso, nkoto-kranne
Adi yɛn bra mu dɛm
Ma yɛn asaase ho dɔ atom sɛɛ
Ɔman no, sɛ ɛbɛyɛ yie oo
Ɛye nsennahɔ sɛ
Ɔmanfo bra na ɛkyɛrɛ
