QUESTION:

Who wrote the Jamaica National Heroes Song?

ANSWER: June-02-2009 by Wellesley Gayle




Hi Narisha,

Here is the song.

I don't know the author either, but will definitely do further research for you.

Update 6/11/09. Still no positive word Narisha, I went as far as to check with the National Library of Jamaica (NLJ) and they admitted they don't have a record of the author either, although they are aware of the song.


Jamaica National Heroes Song:
Forward, Forever United Which We Seek You Seek



Chorus: Forward, forever united
Students workers and farmers

1. Granny Nanny of Nanny Town
symbol of unity and strength
lighted the flame of freedom
in the hearts of earlier Jamaicans

Chorus

2. Sam Sharpe, non-violent leader
instigated the slaves of Jamaica
to fight for freedom and liberty
and throw off the shackles of slavery

Chorus

3. George William Gordon, far seeing statesman
struggled for human rights and dignity
he was unjustly executed
for raising his voice against oppression

Chorus

4. Paul Bogle of Stony Gut
fought against oppression and deception
leader, preacher and martyr
he died in the cause of justice

Chorus

5. Marcus Mosiah Garvey
fighter of Black Man's dignity
throughout every nation
he gave all black man a dream

Chorus

6. Patriot Norman Manley
made politics an instrument of progress
father of the nation
man of integrity and justice

Chorus

7. Alexander Bustamante
a ledgendary figure in his lifetime
indomitable labour leader
first Prime Minister of Jamaica

Final chorus
Forward forever united
Jamaica united forever
