English lyrics[change | change source]

Glory to thee, Motherland
O Motherland of mine.
Sweet is thy beauty,
Sweet is thy fragrance,
Around thee we gather
As one people, as one nation,
In peace, justice and liberty.
Beloved Country, may God bless thee
Forever and ever!

French lyrics[change | change source]

Gloire à toi, Île Maurice,
Ô ma mère patrie!
Fraîche est ta beauté,
Doux est ton parfum,
Nous voici tous debout,
En un seul peuple, une seule nation,
En paix, justice et liberté.
Pays bien-aimé, que Dieu te bénisse,
Aujourd'hui et toujours!
