University of Nairobi we labour all together in search for

knowledge and truth.

We bless and honour Thee, we are the pinnacle of

excellence in knowledge,

Knowledge to serve our mother-land (oh Kenya), knowledge

to serve all mankind


Be not engulfed by pride, let excellence prevail

May we all shun the pitfall, of being the ivory tower

With sacrifice and dedication our problems we’ll overcome


We are the fountain of knowledge we create and hold the


God gives us grace to serve, and the future for us is bright,

and the children

Shall drink from the fountain of knowledge, knowledge

Shall surely set us free (beyond the stars) knowledge shall

surely set them free.

How about posting a link to an mp3 version ... we may want to hear (and perhaps learn) song.
