CAPE VERDE ANTHEM

August 25, 2020

Sing, brother

Sing my brother

because Freedom is an anthem

and man is a certainty. 

Worthily, plant the seed

in the sand of the naked island.

In the precipice of life,

hope is the size of the sea,

which embrace us

Sentinel of seas and winds,

persevering, among stars and the Atlantic

intones the song of Freedom. 

Sing, brother

Sing my brother

because Freedom is an anthem

and man is a certainty.


Canta, irmão

canta meu irmão

que a Liberdade é hino

e o Homem a certeza. 

Com dignidade, enterra a semente

no pó da ilha nua

No despenhadeiro da vida a esperança é

do tamanho do mar

que nos abraça

Sentinela de mares e ventos

perseverante

entre estrelas

e o Atlântico

entoa o cântico da Liberdade 

Canta, irmão

canta meu irmão

que a Liberdade é hino

e o Homem a certeza.
