Anthem Lyrics - English Translation

By the waters of the mighty Niger,
Which adds to the beauty of nature,
Let us be proud and grateful
For our new-won liberty.
Let us avoid vain quarrelling,
So that our blood may be spared,
And may the glorious voice
Of our race, free from tutelage,
Rise unitedly, surging as from one man,
To the dazzling skies above,
Where its eternal soul, watching over us,
Brings greatness to the country.

Arise, Niger, arise! May our fruitful work
Rejuvenate the heart of this old continent,
And may this song resound around the world,
Like the cry of a just and valiant people.
Arise, Niger, arise! On land and river,
To the rhythm of the swelling drum-beats' sound,
May we ever be united and may each one of us
Answer the call of this noble future that says to us, "Forward!"

We find again in our children
All the virtues of our ancestors.
Such virtues are our inspiration
For fighting at every moment.
We confront ferocious and treacherous animals
Often scarcely armed,
Seeking to live in dignity,
Not slaying with a lust to kill.
In the steppe where all feel thirst,
In the burning desert,
Let us march tirelessly forward
As magnanimous and vigilant masters.


Anthem Lyrics in Official Language

Auprès du grand Niger puissant
Qui rend la nature plus belle,
Soyons fiers et reconnaissants
De notre liberté nouvelle.
Evitons les vaines querelles
Afin d'épargner notre sang;
Et que les glorieux accents
De notre race sans tutelle
S'élèvent dans un même élan
Jusqu'à ce ciel éblouissant
Où veille son âme éternelle
Qui fera le pays plus grand.

Debout Niger: Debout!
Que notre œuvre féconde
Rajeunisse le cœur de ce vieux continet,
Et que ce chant s'entende aux quatre coins du monde
Comme le cri d'un Peuple équitable et vaillant!
Debout Niger: Debout!
Sur le sol et sur l'onde,
Au rythme des tamtams, dans leur son grandissant,
Restons unis, toujours, et que chacun réponde
A ce noble avenir qui nous dit: "En avant".

Nous retrouvons dans nos enfants
Toutes les vertus des Ancêtres:
Pour lutter dans tous les instants
Elles sont notre raison d'être.
Nous affrontons le fauve traître
A peine armés le plus souvent,
Voulant subsister dignement
Sans detruire pour nous repaître.
Dans la steppe où chacun ressent
La soif, dans le Sahel brûlant,
Marchons, sans défaillance, en maîtres
Magnanimes et vigilants.
