The Land is Now Green

                         for Muhammadu Buhari

Tears of joy for my country 

Flow now from my eyes

Fill these channels of hope 

Irrigate the dry patches of the land,

Let cries of abundance

Bubble from the mouth of babes

For the  future of the nation

Now hitches on wheels of progress,

Tears of joy for our country

Flow now from our eyes

These cleansing showers from the skies

To rid the land of rot and shame

Let the sun now shine through

To the abundance of a full day!
