G for gold, ‘the shining towers of unfounded gold’,
That stirred men, in Juan Martinez’ story of old;
U for unity in which all Guyanese walk,
Unity in diversity of which we talk;
Y for the year of freedom, independence year
When all Guyanese long for goodwill, peace and cheer;
A for agriculture, rich agricultural soil,
Yielding bounteous harvest after a hard toil.
N for natural regions: vegetable lands
Which must be tilled and nurtured by Guyanese hands.
A for Amerindians, the Aborigines -
First inhabitants of the land of Guyanese.
Land of many waters and arapaima.
