The National Anthem

    Eternal Father bless our land
    Guard us with Thy mighty hand.
    Keep us free from evil powers
    Be our light through countless hours
    To our leaders, Great Defender,
    Grant true wisdom from above
    Justice, truth, be ours forever,
    Jamaica Land we love.
    Jamaica, Jamaica, Jamaica
    Land we love.

    Teach us true respect for all
    Stir response to duty's call.
    Strengthen us the weak to cherish
    Give us vision lest we perish
    Knowledge send us Heavenly Father
    Grant true wisdom from above,
    Justice, truth, be ours forever
    Jamaica Land we love.
    Jamaica, Jamaica, Jamaica
    Land we love.

The National Pledge

- for use in schools at the beginning and end of term and on other special occasions.

Before God and all mankind, I pledge the
love and loyalty of my heart, the wisdom and courage of my
mind, the strength and vigor of my body in the service of my fellow citizens.

I promise to stand up for Justice, Brotherhood and Peace, to work
diligently and creatively, to think generously and
honestly, so that Jamaica may, under God, increase in
beauty, fellowship and prosperity, and play her part in
advancing the welfare of the whole human race.

A National Song

- for use in schools

I PLEDGE MY HEART (to the tune of “I vow to thee, my country)

I pledge my heart forever
To serve with humbled pride
This shining homeland ever
So long as earth abide

I pledge my hear this island,
As God and faith shall live.
My work, my strength, my love and
My loyalty to give.
O green isle of the Indies,
Jamaica, strong and free,
Our vows and loyal promises,
O heartland,’tis to thee

- by Victor Stafford Reid
