Anthem lyrics (use the arrow on the left to collapse this section):

Hail! Grenada, land of ours,
We pledge ourselves to thee,
Heads, hearts and hands in unity
To reach our destiny.
Ever conscious of God,
Being proud of our heritage,
May we with faith and courage
Aspire, build, advance
As one people, one family.
God bless our nation.

Background:

The national anthem of Grenada, “Hail Grenada,” was adopted in 1974 upon its independence from the United Kingdom. It replaced the Grenada “National State Anthem” which was the islands’ national song during its period of associated statehood with the United Kingdom from 1967 to independence. Under that arrangement, the islands effectively controlled their domestic affairs, but foreign relations and defense remained under the authority of the United Kingdom.

As with some other English-speaking Caribbean nations, Grenada is a Commonwealth realm with Queen Elizabeth II acting as the formal head of state. As such, “God Save the Queen” is also used as the nation’s royal anthem.
