On this occasion of the 40th anniversary of independence of The Bahamas, The Bahamas Weekly is proud to present this special tribute to our great nation as a gift to you. Composed by Timothy Gibson, vocals passionately performed by Matisse Rigby, dynamic musical arrangement by Mark Carey, it is The Bahamas National Anthem. This rendition was recorded at Mackeymedia and produced and engineered by Dave Mackey.

Lyrics:

Lift up your head to the rising sun, Bahamaland,
March on to glory, your bright banners waving high,
See how the world marks the manner of your bearing;
Pledge to excel thro' love and unity.
Pressing onward, march together, to a common loftier goal;
Steady sunward tho' the weather hide the wide and treacherous shoal.
Lift up your head to the rising sun, Bahamaland,
'til the road you've trod lead unto your God, March on Bahamaland.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE BAHAMAS!
