TUNISIA NATIONAL ANTHEM

August 7, 2020

O defenders of the Homeland!

Rally around to the glory of our time!

The blood surges in our veins,

We die for the sake of our land.

Let the heavens roar with thunder

Let thunderbolts rain with fire.

Men and youth of Tunisia,

O defenders of the Homeland!

Rally around to the glory of our time!

The blood surges in our veins,

We die for the sake of our land.

As a nation we inherited

Arms like granite towers.

Holding aloft our proud flag flying,

We boast of it, it boasts of us,

Arms that achieve ambitions and glory,

Sure to realize our hopes,

Inflict defeat on foes,

Offer peace to friends.

When the people will to live,

Destiny must surely respond.

Oppression shall then vanish.

Fetters are certain to break.
