LIFT UP YOUR SPIRIT AND VOICE FOR BIAFRA
Let all sons and daughters of the East raise their voices and sing saying;
Till heaven and earth bring peace , love and harmony to the land of rising sun, let our faith sustain.
Let the faith the years of darkness, death, and hatred from our fellow soujourners gave us come to us.
Let us march with our faces lifted high like the flint towards our destiny facing the rising sun till the victory is won.
Let the dusts of our match through the rough roads of our land bring defence to us and confusion to hatred born out of fear of the land of rising sun.
Our feet never weary, our eyes never weak, our spirit never yielding. The palm tree brought us cover, cassava gave strenght, the land gave food for our teeming stomachs.
Land of our fathers and ages past, may our tongues tie to our mouth roofs if we forget the saboteurs, the lovers of money for life, the traitors, and if we dine with the hate
With a heavy sigh we look to highest heavens for help, Our God did not forsake us.
Shall we forget our heroes? Shall we forget the blood and bodies littered along the road? Shall we forget the glee of the haters? Are they not wolves is sheep’s skin?
Lord of our land, drag us away from the haters wine and lusts, pull us back to our land of the rising sun.
Where for ever we all shall stand, in truth to our God, and the our native land of Biafra to the glory and praise of our God who made the heavens and the earth.
From Clement Udegbe on the 50th Anniversary of the end of the War with Hateful Nigeria.
