We Are All We Have

I have always loved this song ‘Great Nation’ by Timi Dakolo and the strong message it has.

Today, as I stepped out of my home to see Nigerians turning out in their numbers to decide the future of our Great Nation, I was truly touched. I saw even the elderly standing on queues, braving the hot sun to vote and for sure, I know that Nigeria is a Great Nation with Great People.

The lyrics of the song are powerful and I’d like us to remember today that We Are All We Have.

The Lyrics

Here we stand as a people
With one song: with one voice
We’re a nation: undivided and poised
We will take our stand: and build our land
With faith: to defend what we love

Here we are as a people
With one heart: for one cause
We’re determined: to rebuild and restore
Where freedom reigns: and truth prevails
A land where there’s hope for us all (2x)

(Chorus)
We’re all we have, we’ll defend our land
We believe in this nation, and we know we’ll get there
We’re all we have, we’ll defend our land
We believe in Nigeria and the promise she holds
And that one day we’ll shine like the sun
We’re a great nation

Though we are many people
Different tribes: different tongues
We’re united in our strength and resolve
To uphold the honour of our land
And for generations to come

(Chorus)
We’re all we have, we’ll defend our land
We believe in this nation, and we know we’ll get there
We’re all we have, we’ll defend our land
We believe in Nigeria and the promise she holds
And that one day we’ll shine like the sun
We’re a great nation
