Eritrean national anthem
State of Eritrea

Ertra, Ertra, Ertra,
The barbarian enemy humiliatingly defeated
And martyrdom has paid for freedom

Decades of devotion for purpose
Your name became challenger, miraculous
Ertra, comfort for the oppressed
Proved that truth can win after all

Ertra, Ertra
A sovereign state on earth after all

Dedication that led to liberation
Will buildup and make her green
We shall honor her with progress
We have a word to her to embellish

Ertra, Ertra
A sovereign state on earth after all
