Barbados National Anthem

Barbados National Anthem
Mr. C. Van Roland Edwards, physically challenged by partial blindness, composed the music for the National Anthem, for which the lyrics were written by Mr. Irving Burgie, a renowned Barbadian/American composer.

The National Anthem
In plenty and in time of need
When this fair land was young
Our brave forefathers sowed the seed
From which our pride is sprung,

A pride that makes no wanton boast
Of what it has withstood
That binds our hearts from coast to coast–
The pride of nationhood.

(Chorus)
We loyal sons and daughters all
Do hereby make it known

These fields and hills beyond recall
Are now our very own.

We write our names on history’s page
With expectations great,
Strict guardians of our heritage,
Firm craftsmen in our fate.

The Lord has been the people’s guide
For past three hundred years.

With him still on the people’s side
We have no doubts or fears.

Upward and onward we shall go,
Inspired, exulting, free,
And greater will our nation grow
In strength and unity.
