National Anthem

Melody - and text: Patrick S. Castagne

Forged from the love of liberty,
In the fires of hope and prayer,
With boundless faith in our destiny,
We solemnly declare:
Side by Side we stand,
Islands of the blue Caribbean Sea,
This our native land,
We pledge our lives to thee.
|: Here ev'ry creed and race
   Find an equal place,
   And may God bless our nation. :|

The Anthem was first played officially at the Independence Day flag raising ceremony on 31. August 1962, outside of the Parliament Building in Port-of-Spain. The anthem was the winner of a competition held by the government.
