1st couplet
O terre sacrée de nos ancêtres,
Lumière éclairant nos vies,
Tu les invites à nous transmettre
Leurs rêves, leurs espoirs, leurs envies.
A l’abri des pins colonnaires,
A l’ombre des flamboyants,
Dans les vallées de tes rivières,
Leur coeur toujours est présent.

Chorus
Hnoresaluso ke’j onome
Ha deko ikuja ne enetho

Soyons unis, devenons frères,
Plus de violence ni de guerre.
Marchons confiants et solidaires,
Pour notre pays.

2nd couplet
Terre de parole et de partage
Tu proposes à l’étranger,
Dans la tribu ou le village,
Un endroit pour se reposer.
Tu veux loger la tolérance,
L’équité et le respect,
Au creux de tes bras immenses,
O Terre de liberté.

[Chorus]

3rd couplet
O terre aux multiples visages,
Nord, Sud, Iles loyauté,
Tes trois provinces sont l’image
De ta grande diversité.
Nous tes enfants, tu nous rassembles,
Tempérant nos souvenirs.
D’une seule voix, chantons ensemble :
Terre, tu es notre avenir.
