I was born here in this blessed land

I am true bred Vincentian

But it hurts my heart to see

The segregation among us daily

Brothers against brothers

Families fighting each other down

Everyday political disunity

On the streets of SVG

Economic hardship all over the world

That put our backs up against the wall

But we can’t let we country fall{{more}}

We have to unite, come together and stick through it all

And St Vincent will rise

St Vincent will rise

St Vincent will rise again

St Vincent will rise

St Vincent will rise

St Vincent will rise again

Through education ( we will rise)

Strong leadership and dedication ( we will rise)

Agriculture diversification ( we will rise)

Technological and new job creation

St Vincent will rise St Vincent will rise again

I remember growing up as a boy

I watched my parents toil and toil

Loyalty and commitment

What humility they displayed

Put differences aside

Make every sacrifice

Its up to you and me I say, to carry that torch today

We cannot live in the past

We have to act now and move fast

Though it might be difficult to conceive

We have to hold fast, stay strong, stand firm and believe.

As a united people

We will never stumble

If we uncerstand our history

We can plot and plan our destiny

St Vincent will rise St Vincent will rise again.

To move forward with this nation

We must follow our ancestor’s legacy and dedication

Courage, integrity, and daily prayers to the Almighty

The youths they are our future

We must empower and strengenthen their endeavors.

Teach them how to live and their brothers keeper

With a strong foundation we will recover

Yes we can make it through any weather

But we have to bond together as one

With one heart, one voice, and one song

In times of disaster

Lend a hand to your neighbour

Show some love to your sister

Respect and appreciate her

St Vincent will rise St Vincent will rise again.
