Anthem Lyrics English

With courage and discipline we have broken all barriers.

With the tiller in our hands, we will always remain brothers.

Never, never shall we cease struggling.

Death rather than to live in slavery!

Never, never shall we cease struggling.

Equality for all of us! Freedom for ever!

Chorus

Rise, free men!

Proud Seychellois, our doors are open.

Our path is traced,

Our sun has risen,

We will not turn back.

Rise, free men!

Rise, Seychellois!

Let us remain in unity and liberty.



With dignity we must cultivate our land,

With determination we must exploit our seas.

Let us for ever march together

To harvest all we have planted.

Let us for ever march together,

Fraternity in our hearts, to the future ahead of us.

Chorus
