The KSM Nigeria Anthem

Mathias Kalemba, dear Saint Mulumba
Brave Champion of faith for all Africa
Our Patron art thou do pray for your Knights
Your faith and courage to emulate.

With four limbs chopped off, you still derided
And strongly disdained satanic fury
You lingered limbless Thursday thro’ Sunday
To God your soul then commended.

Katonda Katonda, to you oh my God
This day now I come, from torture and pain
Grant everlasting and blissful reward
For death is the only gate to life eternal.

Dear Patron Saint Mulumba, nurture Nigeria
Christ’s banner to raise and charity spread
From sapling to Iroko our faith shall grow
May we evangelize more by deeds than mere words, Amen.

We will be glad to hear from you
