Rhodesian National Anthem

A rousing rendition of the anthem of a once proud nation. South Africa should have stood behind Rhodesia completely as it may have prevented the calamity that has befallen South Africa. After Rhodesia fell, all attention was diverted to South Africa accelerating its demise. I wouldn't bother listening to the Zimbabwe version. Picture a tree full of chattering monkeys. Something like that.

Rise, O voices of Rhodesia

Rise, O voices of Rhodesia,
God may we thy bounty share,
Give us strength to face all danger and,
Where challenge is, to dare.

Guide us, Lord, to wise decision,
Ever of thy grace aware,
Oh, let our hearts beat bravely always,
For this land within thy care.

Rise, O voices of Rhodesia,
Bringing her your proud acclaim,
Grandly echoing through the mountains,
Rolling over far flung plain.

Roaring in the mighty rivers,
Joining in one grand refrain,
Ascending to the sunlit heavens,
Telling of her honoured name.
