National anthem of Ethiopia

The lyrics of the National Anthem of Ethiopia

ወደፊት ገስግሺ ውድ እናት ኢትዮጵያ

የዜግነት ፡ ክብር ፡ በኢትዮጵያችን ፡ ጸንቶ ፣
ታየ ፡ ሕዝባዊነት ፡ ዳር ፡ እስከዳር ፡ በርቶ ።
ለሰላም ፡ ለፍትሕ ፡ ለሕዝቦች ፡ ነጻነት ፣
በእኩልነት ፡ በፍቅር ፡ ቆመናል ፡ ባንድነት ።
መሠረተ ፡ ጽኑ ፡ ሰብእናን ፡ ያልሻርን ፣
ሕዝቦች ፡ ነን ፡ ለሥራ ፡ በሥራ ፡ የኖርን ።
ድንቅ ፡ የባህል ፡ መድረክ ፡ ያኩሪ ፡ ቅርስ ፡ ባለቤት ፣
የተፈጥሮ ፡ ጸጋ ፡ የጀግና ፡ ሕዝብ ፡ እናት ።
እንጠብቅሻለን ፡ አለብን ፡ አደራ ፣
ኢትዮጵያችን ፡ ኑሪ ፡ እኛም ፡ ባንቺ ፡ እንኩራ ።

March Forward, Dear Mother Ethiopia

Respect for citizenship is strong in our Ethiopia;
National pride is seen, shining from one side to another.
For peace, for justice, for the freedom of peoples,
In equality and in love we stand united.
Firm of foundation, we do not dismiss humanness;
We are people who live through work.
Wonderful is the stage of tradition, owners of a proud heritage,
Natural grace, mother of a valorous people.
We shall protect you – we have a duty;
Our Ethiopia, live! And let us be proud of you!

The National Anthem of Ethiopia was written by Dereje Melaku Mengesha and composed by Solomon Lulu Mitiku.

Ethiopia has not an official motto.
