O Pátria, nunca mais esqueceremos
Os heróis do quatro de Fevereio.

Anthem Lyrics English

O Fatherland, we shall never forget
The heroes of the Fourth of February.
O Fatherland, we salute your sons
Who died for our Independence.
We honour the past and our history
As by our work we build the New Man.
We honour the past and our history
As by our work we build the New Man.

CHORUS (twice)

Forward, Angola!
Revolution through the power of the People!
A United Country, Freedom,
One People, one Nation!

Let us raise our liberated voices
To the glory of the peoples of Africa.
We shall march, Angolan fighters,
In solidarity with oppressed peoples.
We shall fight proudly for Peace
Along with the progressive forces of the world.
We shall fight proudly for Peace
Along with the progressive forces of the world.
