Botswana National Anthem
Translated National Anthem of Botswana
Gift to us from God's strong hand,
Heritage our fathers left to us,
May it always be at peace.
Awake, awake, O men, awake!
And women close beside them stand,
Together we'll work and serve
This land, this happy land!
Word of beauty and of fame,
The name Botswana to us came.
Through our unity and harmony,
We'll remain at peace as one.
