Grenada Information and History from national geographic,  
Grenada, located in the southeastern Caribbean, consists of the islands of Grenada, Carriacou, and Petite Martinique. Most Grenadians are of African descent. Grenada, the largest and most populous island, is known as The Spice of the Caribbean. Nutmeg replaced sugar as the main crop after the British took the island from France in 1783. Small farms replaced sugar plantations, slavery was abolished, and today the sweet smells of nutmeg and other spices waft on balmy breezes. Independence came in 1974; a military coup in 1983 brought a U.S.-Caribbean force that restored democracy.

GRENADA NATIONAL ANTHEM

In 1974, Hail Grenada was adopted as the National Anthem of Grenada. The words are by Irva Merle Baptiste and the music is by Louis Arnold Masanto.

Hail! Grenada, land of ours,
We pledge ourselves to thee,
Heads, hearts and hands in unity
To reach our destiny.
Ever conscious of God,
Being proud of our heritage,
May we with faith and courage
Aspire, build, advance
As one people, one family.
God bless our nation.
