official imperial ethiopian anthem 

established by H.I.M. Emperor Haile Selassie I

 

English lyrics:

Ethiopia, be happy
Thanks to the power of God and your ruler.
Your brave citizens are unanimous;
Your freedom will never be touched,
as your mountains are defiant
and your natives do not fear any enemy.
Long lives our victorious ruler
to the glory of our country.
Your mountains are defiant
and your natives do not fear any enemy.
Long lives our victorious ruler
to the glory of our country.

 

Ge’ez lyrics:

ኢትዮጵያ ሆይ ደስ ይበልሽ
በአምላክሽ ኃይል በንጉሥሽ
ተባብረዋል አርበኞችሽ
አይነካም ከቶ ነጻነትሽ
ብርቱ ናቸውና ተራሮችሽ
አትፈሪም ከጠላቶችሽ
ድል አድራጊው ንጉሳችን
ይኑርልን ለክብራችን 
ብርቱ ናቸው ተራሮችሽ
አትፈሪም ከጠላቶችሽ
ድል አድራጊው ንጉሳችን
ይኑርልን ለክብራችን

 

Amharic lyrics: (Romanization)

The U.N.I.A. Universal Anthem

established by Rev. Ford & Burrell

Ethiopia the land of our Fathers,

The Land where our Gods love to be,

As the swift bees to hive sudden gather,

Thy children all gather to thee.

With our Red, Gold and Green floating 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 song.

 

(Chorus)

 

God Bless our NEGUS, NEGUS I,

And keep Ethiopia free

To Advance / To Advance

With TRUTH and RIGHT / truth and right

To Advance / To Advance

with LOVE and LIGHT/ love and light

With RIGHTEOUSNESS leading

We hail to our God and King

Humanity’s pleading – One God for us all

 

O Eternal thou God of the ages

Grant unto THY sons that lead

THY wisdom thou hast given through the ages

When Israel was sore in need.

THY voice through the dim past has spoken

ETHIOPIA shall stretch forth HER hand

By THEE shall all barriers be broken

And Zion bless our dear MOTHERLAND

 

(Chorus)

 

ETHIOPIA, the tyrants are fallen,

Who smote thee upon thy knees

THY children are heartically 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 trodding years.

 

(Chorus)

The Ras Tafari Creed

established by the Great Rastafari Nation

Prince and Princess come out of Egypt,

Ethiopian shall stretch forth their hands unto God.

O thou God of Ethiopia, Our Divine Majesty,

Thy Spirit has come into our hearts to dwell in the paths of righteousness, Lead us.

Help us to forgive that we may be forgiven,

Teach us love, loyalty on earth as it is in Zion.

Endure us with thy wisdom, knowledge and understanding to do thy will,

Thy blessing to us, that the hungry be fed,

The naked clothed,

The sick nourished,

The aged protected

And the infants cared for.

Deliver us from the hands of our enemies

That we may prove fruitful in these perilous days,

When our enemies have passed and decayed,

In the depths of the seas,

In the depth of the earth,

or in the bowels of a beast,

O Grant unto us all a place in thy Kingdom forever.

Selah…
