O Arise, All You Sons

O arise all you sons of this land,
Let us sing of our joy to be free,
Praising God and rejoicing to be
Papua New Guinea.

Shout our name from the mountains to the seas
Papua New Guinea;
Let us raise our voices and proclaim
Papua New Guinea.

Now give thanks to the good Lord above
For His kindness, His wisdom and love
For this land of our fathers so free,
Papua New Guinea.

Shout again for the whole world to hear
Papua New Guinea;
We are independent and we’re free
Papua New Guinea.

The National Anthem of Papua New Guinea was written and composed by Thomas Shacklady.


O Arise, All You Sons” is the national anthem of Papua New Guinea. The ‘National Identity Act’ of Papua New Guinea was formed in 1971, motivating the country to create a national flag, a national emblem, a national pledge, and a national anthem.

The Papua New Guinean national flag and emblem were adopted in 1971. However, the National Anthem remained undecided until 1975, four years later. Although many songs were submitted to be the anthem, the National Executive Council decided a week before the country’s Independence Day (10 September 1975), to adopt as the national anthem a composition that was composed by Chief Inspector Thomas Shacklady (1917–2006), a bandmaster of the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary Band.
