In Plenty and In Time of Need

In Plenty and In Time of Need (bos. U obilju i potrebi) je državna himna Barbadosa. Napisao ju je Irving Burgie i komponovao ju je C. Van Roland Edwards. Kao dio Federacije zapadnoindijskih otoka od 1958. do 1962. godine, himna Barbadosa je trebala biti Forged from the Love of Liberty (koja je trenutna državna himna Trinidad i Tobaga), međutim, trenutna himna je napravljena sa ciljem potpune nezavisnosti Barbadosa. Pjesma je usvojena kada je zemlja postala nezavisna 1966. godine.[1]

In plenty and in time of need
When this fair land was young
Our brave forefathers sowed the seed
From which our pride was sprung
A pride that makes no wanton boast
Of what it has withstood
That binds our hearts from coast to coast
The pride of nationhood
We loyal sons and daughters all
Do hereby make it known
These fields and hills beyond recall
Are now our very own
We write our names on history's page
With expectations great
Strict guardians of our heritage
Firm craftsmen of our fate
The Lord has been the people's guide
For past three hundred years.
With Him still on the people's side
We have no doubts or fears.
Upward and onward we shall go,
Inspired, exulting, free,
And greater will our nation grow
In strength and unity.
