  • NATIONAL PLEDGE

    The Pledge Of Allegiance written by Rev. Philip Rahming

    I pledge my allegiance to the flag and to the Commonwealth of The Bahamas for which it stands, one people united in love and service.

    BAHAMIAN NATIONAL ANTHEM

    March On Bahamaland composed by the late, Timothy Gibson

    Lift up your head to the rising sun, Bahamaland; March on to glory your bright banners waving high. See how the world marks the manner of your bearing! Pledge to excel through love and unity. Pressing onward, march together to a common loftier goal; Steady sunward, tho' the weather hide the wide and treachrous shoal. Lift up your head to the rising sun, Bahamaland, 'Til the road you've trod lead unto your God, March On, Bahamaland.
