The Kenya national anthem is a patriotic song usually sung during national events and other official gathering. It can also be sung during Kenya representation in international games and sports. This anthem can be sung both in English and Swahili. The anthem consists of three stanzas, each stanza consisting of six lines as shown below:

English version

  • O god of all creation

Bless this land and nation

Justice be our shield and defender,

May we dwell in unity,

Peace and liberty

Plenty be found within our boarders


  • Let one and all arise

With hearts both strong and true

Service be our earnest endeavor

And our homeland of Kenya,

Heritage of splendor

Firm may we stand to defend


  • Let all in one accord

In common bond united,

Build this our nation together

And the glory of Kenya,

The fruits of our labor

Fill every heart with thanksgiving.


Swahili Version

  • Ee Mungu nguvu yetu

Ilete Baraka Kwetu

Haki iwe ngoa na mlinzi

Natukae na undugu

Amani na Uhuru

Raha tupate na ustawi.


  • Amkeni ndugu zetu

Tufanya sote bidii

Nasitujitoe kwa nguvu

Nchi yetu ya Kenya

Tunayo ipenda

Tuwe tayari kuilinda


  • Natujenge taifa letu

Ee, ndio wajibu wetu

Kenya istahili heshima

Tuungane mikono

Pamoja kazini

Kila siku tuwe na shukrani.
