For The Gambia, our homeland, we strive and work and pray,
That all may live in unity, freedom and peace each day.
Let justice guide our actions towards the common good,
And join our diverse peoples to prove man's brotherhood.
We pledge our firm allegiance, our promise we renew;
Keep us, great God of nations, to The Gambia ever true.

- Adapted from the traditional Mandinka song 'Foday Kaba Dumbuya'
