Antigua And Barbuda National Anthem
English Translation

Fair Antigua and Barbuda
We thy sons and daughters stand
Strong and firm in peace or danger,
To safeguard our native land:

We commit ourselves to building
A true nation, brave and free!
Ever striving, ever seeking
Dwell in love and unity.

Raise the standard! Raise it boldly!
Answer now to duty call:
To the service of your country,
Sparing nothing giving all!
Gird your loins and join the battle
Gainst fear hate and poverty:
Each endeavouring, all achieving,
Live in peace where man is free!

God of nations, let thy blessing
Fall upon this land ours
Rain and sunshine ever sending
Fill her fields with crops and flowers:
We, her children do implore thee:
Give us strength, faith, loyalty:
Never failing, all enduring
To defend her liberty.

Both islands are mostly low lying and made from coral and limestone, although there are some higher volcanic areas.

The total land area of Antigua and Barbuda is 171 square miles (442 square kilometres)…
