Ethiopia's Imperial Anthem was a wonderful one.  It was titled "Ityopia Hoy Des Yibelish" (Rejoice Oh Ethiopia).  The first few lines translate to "Rejoice oh Ethiopia, in the power of your God, and in your King."  The communist era anthem was "Ityopia, Ityopia" (Ethiopia, Ethiopia) and was a rousing tune and the only objection I have to it is the fact that it was the Dergs anthem, otherwise it was ok.  I don't know the present Ethiopian anthem.

Ethiopia stretches her hands unto God (Quote from Psalm 68 which served as the Imperial Motto of the Ethiopian Empire)

"God and history shall remember your judgment." (Quote from Emperor Haile Selassie I's speech to the League of Nations to plead for assistance against the Italian Invasion, 1936.)
