NATIONAL ANTHEM

SONG OF ABIDJAN

We salute you, O land of hope,

Country of hospitality;

Thy full gallant legions

Have restored thy dignity.

Beloved Ivory Coast, thy sons,

Proud builders of thy greatness,

All gathered together for thy glory,

In joy will we construct thee

Proud Ivorians, the country calls us.

If we have brought back liberty peacefully,

It will be our duty to be an example

Of the hope promised to humanity,

In building, united in the new faith

The homeland of true brotherhood.
