National Anthem

History

This anthem was in use during the rule of an Emperor from 1930 to 1974. The music was composed in 1926 by Kevork Nalbandian, an Armenian living in Ethiopia. It was first performed when the Emperor was crowned Emperor on November 2, 1930 and remained the national anthem until the emporer was overthrown by socialist army officers in 1974 and the socialists fully gained control of the government in 1975. work cited http://www.nationalanthems.info/et-75.htm

NATIONAL ANTHEM OF ETHIOPIA

written down

March Forward, Dear Mother Ethiopia

Respect for citizenship is strong in our Ethiopia;
National pride is seen, shining from one side to another.
For peace, for justice, for the freedom of peoples,
In equality and in love we stand united.
Firm of foundation, we do not dismiss humanness;
We are peoples who live through work.
Wonderful is the stage of tradition, mistress of proud heritage,
Mother of natural virtue, mother of a valorous people.
We shall protect you - we have a duty;
Our Ethiopia, live! And let us be proud of you! work cited
