Francis Anthony Govia
What nation is content to not surpass
What other nations have achieved?
Who dare to say second
Nations must do
Whatever is in their interest
And to that purpose we strive
Free from the paralysis of fear
With the will to fight for what we believe.
Though sanctioned and pilloried
We do what others say should not be done
To lift our nation beyond compare.
While many may genuflect to a power across the sea
And cast their lot against us,
We shall not condone inequality:
Unbowed a nation goes thru fire for honor
And blame man.
Bowed a nation accepts what is convenient
And cheer God.
