Anthem Lyrics

Patria Amada



Na memória de África e do mundo


Pátria bela dos que ousaram lutar!


Moçambique o teu nome é liberdade


O Sol de Junho para sempre brilhará!

CHORUS:


Moçambique nossa terra gloriosa!


Pedra a pedra construindo o novo dia!


Milhões de braços, uma só força!


Ó pátria amada vamos vencer!

Povo unido do Rovuma ao Maputo


Colhe os frutos do combate pela Paz!


Cresce o sonho ondulando na Bandeira


E vai lavrando na certeza do amanhã!

Flores brotando do chão do teu suor


Pelos montes, pelos rios, pelo mar!


Nós juramos por ti, ó Moçambique


Nenhum tirano nos irá escravizar!
