 THE UNIVERSAL ETHIOPIAN ANTHEM 

Ethiopia the land of our fathers,
The land where our God loved to be
As the swift bee to hive sudden gathers,
Thy children all gather to thee
With our Green, Gold and Red flowering o'er us
With our Emperor to shield us from wrong
With our God and our future before us,
We will hail thee with shout and with songs

Chorus

God bless our Negus, Negus I and keep Ethiopia free,
To advance, to advance with truth and right
To advance with love and light
With righteousness leading,
We haste to our God and King,
Humanity pleading, One God for us all.

O Eternal thou art God of the ages,
Grant unto our sons that lead
The wisdom thou hast given to our ages
When Ethiopia was sore in need
Thy voice thro the dim past hast spoken
Ethiopia shall stretch forth her hands
By thee shall all barriers be broken
And Zion bless our dear Motherland.

Chorus

God bless our Negus, Negus I and keep Ethiopia free,
To advance, to advance with truth and right
To advance with love and light
With righteousness leading,
We haste to our God and King,
Humanity pleading, One God for us all.

Ethiopia, the tyrants are falling
Who smote Thee upon Thy Knees,
Thy children are lustily calling,
From over the distant seas,
Jehovah, the Great One has heard us,
He has noted our sighs and our tears,
With the spirit of love he has stirred us
To be one all through the coming years.

Chorus

God bless our Negus, Negus I and keep Ethiopia free,
To advance, to advance with truth and right
To advance with love and light
With righteousness leading,
We haste to our God and King,
Humanity pleading, One God for us all.

One God for us all, ina Mount Zion
