La Nigérienne
With big powerful Niger
Which returns the more beautiful nature,
Let us be proud and grateful
Of our new freedom!
Let us avoid the empty quarrels
To save our blood,
And that glorious accents
Of our race or without custody!
Rises in the same run-up
Up to this brilliant sky,
Where watches his eternal soul
Which will make the bigger country!
Up! Niger! Up!
That our fertile work
Makes look younger the heart of this old continent!
And what this song gets
In the four corners of the world
As the shout of fair and brave people
Up! Niger! Up!
On the ground and on the wave,
In the sound of the fusses
In their increasing rhythm,
Let us remain close, always,
And what each answers
In this noble future
Who says to us: - forward!
