NIGER NATIONAL ANTHEM

August 7, 2020

Throughout great powerful Niger
Which makes nature more beautiful,
Let us be proud and grateful
Of our new freedom!
Let us avoid vain quarrels
In order to spare ourselves bloodshed,
and may the glorious voices
Of our race be free of domination!
Let us rise in a single leap
As high as the dazzling sky,
Where stands guard its eternal soul
Which will make the country greater!


CHORUS
Arise! Niger! Arise!
May our fruitful labors
Rejuvinate the heart of this old continent!
And may the song be heard
In the four corners of the Earth
As the cry of a fair and valliant people!
Arise! Niger! Arise!
On the ground and on the wave,,
To the sound of the drums
In their growing rythms
Let us always remain united,
And may each one respond
To this noble future
Which tells us: – Go forward!
