Stand and Sing of Zambia, Proud and Free

Allikas: Vikipeedia

"Stand and Sing of Zambia, Proud and Free" ('Tõuse ja laula Sambiast, uhke ja vabana'), bemba keeles "Lumbanyeni Zambia" on Sambia riigihümn. Hümn võeti kasutusele pärast riigi iseseisvumist 1964. aastal.

Hümni viisina on kasutusel Lõuna-Aafrika Vabariigi helilooja Enoch Sontonga 1897. aastal loodud hümni "Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika" ("God Bless Africa") meloodia. Sõnad loodi Sambia iseseisvumise ajal.
