GUYANA

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