Lyrics

English lyrics Swahili lyrics Luganda lyrics Lusoga lyrics
Oh Uganda!
May God uphold Thee,
We lay our future in thy hand,
United, free,
For liberty,
Together we'll always stand.
Oh Uganda!
The land of Freedom,
Our love and labor we give,
And with neighbours' all,
At our Country's call,
In peace and friendship, we'll live.
Oh Uganda!
The land that Feeds us,
By sun and fertile soil grown,
For our own dear land,
We'll always stand,
The Pearl of Africa's Crown.
Ewe Uganda!
Mungu akutunze,
Tunaweka kesho yetu mkononi mwako,
Pamoja kama watu huru
Kwa ajili ya uhuru,
Tutashikamana daima.
Ewe Uganda!
Nchi ya uhuru,
Tunakutolea upendo na kazi,
Pamoja na majirani wetu,
Kwa wito wa nchi yetu,
Twaishi kwa amani na undugu.
Ewe Uganda!
Nchi inayotulisha,
Kwa jua na ardhi yenye rutba,
Kwa ajili ya nchi yetu,
Tutasimama daima,
Wewe ni lulu ya taji la Afrika.
O Yuganda!

Ku butaka bwaife obukombe,
Twidha buliidho kwemerera gho,
Ekimyanshyo kya kadaali wa Afirika!

Mu mahoro n’ubushuti turi bazima.

Kubw’issi yaacu dukuunda,
Tuzaahora duhagaze,
Ubwiiza bw’Africa itaamba.
