Home Our NationNational SymbolsNational Anthem

Tanzania was the first African nation to use the popular African song "God Bless Africa" as its anthem in 1961 when it was Tanganyika and was retained after union with Zanzibar in 1964. It is now also used by South Africa (as part of the current anthem) and Zambia (with different words), and formerly used by Zimbabwe, Ciskei, and Transkei. The version used in Tanzania is in Kiswahili (the official language of the country) and not in Sontonga's original lyrics of Xhosa.


God Bless Africa.
Bless its leaders.
Let Wisdom Unity and
Peace be the shield of
Africa and its people. 


Bless Africa,
Bless Africa,
Bless the children of Africa.

God Bless Tanzania.
Grant eternal Freedom and Unity

To its sons and daughters.
God Bless Tanzania and its People. 


Bless Tanzania,
Bless Tanzania,
Bless the children of Tanzania.
