Hail to thee, land of our forefathers

’Thou who made them strong,

Peaceful and happy,

Men who for posterity,

Cultivated virtue and bravery.

Even if tyrants shall come,

Thy heart yearns towards freedom.

Togo arise! Let us struggle without faltering.

Victory or death, but dignity.

God almighty, Thou alone,

Hast made Togo prosper.

People of Togo arise!

Let us build the nation.

To serve thee in unity

Is the most burning desire of our hearts.

Let us shout aloud our motto

That nothing can tarnish.

We the only builders of

thy happiness and of thy future,

Everywhere let us break

chains and treachery,

And we swear to thee for ever faith,

Love, service, untiring zeal,

To make thee yet, beloved Togo,

A golden example for humanity.

Hail, hail to the entire Universe

Let us unite our efforts on this

immense building site

Whence will be reborn anew

Great Humanity.

Everywhere, instead of misery,

let us bring happiness.

Let us chase from the world

unruly hatred.

It’s over with slavery and Captivity.

At the star of liberty,

Let us renew the solidarity

Of the Nations in fraternity.
