English lyrics Swahili lyrics
Oh Uganda!

May God uphold Thee
We lay our future in thy hand
United, free, for liberty
Together we'll always stand.

Oh Uganda!
The land of Freedom
Our love and labor we give
And with neighbors' all
At our Country's call
In peace and friendship, we'll live.

Oh Uganda!
The land that Feeds us
By sun and fertile soil grown
For our own dear land
We'll always stand
The Pearl of Africa's Crown.

Ewe Uganda!

Mungu akutunze
Tunaweka kesho yetu mkononi mwako.
Pamoja kama watu huru kwa ajili ya uhuru
Tutashikamana daima.

Ewe Uganda!
Nchi ya uhuru
Tunakutolea upendo na kazi.
Pamoja na majirani wetu
Kwa wito wa nchi yetu
Twaishi kwa amani na undugu.

Ewe Uganda!
Nchi inayotulisha
Kwa jua na ardhi yenye rutba.
Kwa ajili ya nchi yetu
Tutasimama daima
Wewe ni lulu ya taji la Afrika.


[2] The anthem is one of the shortest in the world, and is occasionally performed twice in a row to lengthen it.[1]
