CAMEROON NATIONAL ANTHEM

August 6, 2020

Ô Cameroun berceau de nos ancêtres,

Va debout et jaloux de ta liberté,

Comme un soleil ton drapeau fier doit être,

Un symbole ardent de foi et d’unité.

Que tous tes enfants du Nord au Sud,

De l’Est à l’Ouest soient tout amour,

Te servir que ce soit le seul but,

Pour remplir leur devoir toujours.

Chère Patrie, Terre chérie,

Tu es notre seul et vrai bonheur,

Notre joie et notre vie,

En toi l’amour et le grand honneur.

Tu es la tombe où dorment nos pères,

Le jardin que nos aïeux ont cultivé.

Nous travaillons pour te rendre prospère,

Un beau jour enfin nous serons arrivés.

De l’Afrique sois fidèle enfant

Et progresse toujours en paix,

Espérant que tes jeunes enfants

T’aimeront sans bornes à jamais.


O Cameroon cradle of our ancestors,

Go, upright and jealous of your freedom.

As the sun, let your flag be proud,

A symbol of ardent faith and unity,

May all your children, from North to South

From East to West, live in love!

May serving you be their sole purpose

To fulfill their duty forever.

Dear Fatherland, dear land,

You are our only true happiness.

Our joy, our life

To you, love and the greatest honor.

Thou art the grave where our fathers sleep,

The garden that our ancestors have cultivated.

We work to make you prosperous

One good day we will finally get there.

Be Africa’s faithful child

And always advance peace

Hoping that your children

Love you without limit forever
