The First President of the Republic

Friday, January 14, 2011

Forged from his love for liberty and unity

With prayer, faith and fasting

From 1962 to 2002

A destiny for me and you

The first president of the republic

Governor, knight, president

He declared the way

He steered the day

Side by side, islands of the Caribbean Sea

We continue his legacy

Unity or disunity, pro or contra

Is left for us to see

Here, everyone finds an equal space

Regardless of creed or race

God bless His Excellency

God bless T&T.
