"Ethiopia Shall Rise”

by Kwame Nkrumah

President Kwame Nkrumah,
the first president of Ghana
once wrote a poem on Ethiopia 

Ethiopia shall rise 


Ethiopia, Africa’s bright gem 


Set high among the verdant hills 


That gave birth to the unfailing 


Waters of the Nile 


Ethiopia shall rise 


Ethiopia, land of the wise;


Ethiopia, bold cradle of Africa’s ancient rule 


And fertile school 


Of our African culture; 


Ethiopia, the wise 


Shall rise 


And remould with us the full figure 


Of Africa’s hopes  

And destiny.

Kwame Nkrumah
