Our Heroes and Heroines: It wasn’t Easy

Many a tears were shed,
Pools of blood shed,
Many lives were lost,
Struggles incomprehensible,
Pain unthinkable, unspeakable,
Ruled their days,
They bore it all

Not losing focus,
By faith,
They fought on,
Eyes on the goal,
The goal,
Independent Kenya

Freedom would come,
Peace and calm,
Would prevail,
A self governing nation,
They’d be,
Free from colonialism

At last,
Tomorrow dawned,
Freedom at last!
Was their song, their dance,
Freedom had come
Their hope,
Their dream,

These are the people,
The brave people,
They are the heroes and heroines,
Heroes and heroines of our nation,
The heroes and heroines
Of Kenya’s Independence

We celebrate independence,
We celebrate the Republic of Kenya,
We celebrate our heroes,
We celebrate Jehovah Sabaoth,
The Lord who fought on with them,
Despite all the suffering,
The battle was won,
Kenya became a Republic,
The reason we celebrate today!

We celebrate today,
For our heroes, our heroines,
Were brave,
Brave enough to fight,
Fight selflessly,
For freedom!

As we celebrate today,
And every other day,
Being a republic,
Let’s not forget,
Our heroes and heroines
Who fought for us,

It wasn’t easy,
But it was worth it,
The reason we celebrate today,

God bless our heroes and heroines,
God bless The Republic of Kenya.
