The lyrics of the National Anthem of Lesotho
Lesotho fatshe la bo-ntata rona
Lesotho fatshe la bo-ntata rona;
Hara mafatshe ohle le letle ke lona;
Ke moo re hlahileng,
Ke moo re holileng,
Rea le rata.
Molimo aku boloke Lesotho
U felise lintoa le matsoenyeho;
Oho fatse lena;
La bo-ntata rona;
Le be le khotso.
Lesotho, Land of Our Fathers
Lesotho, land of our Fathers,
Among the lands it is the most beautiful.
It is where we were born,
It is where we grew up–
We love it.
God, please protect Lesotho.
Spare it conflict, and tribulation–
Oh, this land,
Land of our Fathers,
May it have the peace.
The National Anthem of Lesotho was written by J.P. Mohapeloa and François Coillard and composed by Ferdinand Samuel Laur.
The motto of Lesotho: Peace, Rain, Prosperity.
