Like a lion you will have

Like a lamb you will be led

That's the promise of this land

That's a promise to be held

A promise is a a promise

Come on sisters, you princesses

Like pillars you stand

and will erupt the community if you fall

So hold up now hold strong

Like a lion you will have

Like a lamb you will be led

That's the promise of this land

That's a promise to be held

A promise is a a promise

Like you brothers, you princes

Like warriors you united

and will shaken the land if you fall

So be brave now fight a good fight

Like a lion you will have

Like a lamb you will be led

That's the promise of this land

That's a promise to be held

A promise is a a promise

All are welcome to this place

All are welcome to the kingdom

Few from many, many from few

Your mind must be willing

your heart set on good

Your soul thirsty

Your body withstood

Like a lion you will have

Like a lamb you will be led

That's the promise of this land

That's a promise to be held

A promise is a a promise

Finally a home that never ceases

lasting down through the ages

and fulfilling all of its promises

No higher ground could be any better

Peace with neighbors

And love for living

Everyday a reason to be thankful.

Like a lion you will have

Like a lamb you will be led

That's the promise of this land

That's a promise to be held

A promise is a a promise
