May this solemn prayer reach and touch every Kenyan; beyond age, tribe, rank, position, level of education, place in our sovereign state. As we live, may be reminded of the hand of God is our doings, the prayers made by our forefathers for a blessed and peaceful nation, the present privileges we enjoy because of what those who came before us sacrificed & dreamed for, and the foundations and principles we need to establish and develop for the sake of the future generations. We all have a part to play, to love and live in unity towards fulfilling dreams and aspirations as a people and as a nation.
O God of all creation,
Bless this our land and nation.
Justice be our shield and defender.
May we dwell in unity,
Peace and liberty;
Plenty be found within our borders.
Let one and all arise,
With hearts both strong and true
Service be our earnest endeavour
And our homeland of Kenya
Heritage of splendour
Firm may we stand to defend.
Let all with one accord
In common bond united
Build this our nation together
And the glory of Kenya
The fruit of our labour
Fill every heart with thanksgiving.
