The lyrics of the National Anthem of the Republic of Congo

La Congolaise

En ce jour le soleil se lève
Et notre Congo resplendit.
Une longue nuit s’achève,
Un grand bonheur a surgi.
Chantons tous avec ivresse
Le chant de la liberté.

Congolais, debout fièrement partout,
Proclamons l’union de notre nation,
Oublions ce qui nous divise,
Soyons plus unis que jamais,
Vivons pour notre devise:
Unité, travail, progrès!
Vivons pour notre devise:
Unité, travail, progrès!

Des forêts jusqu’à la savanne,
Des savannes jusqu’à la mer,
Un seul peuple, une seule âme,
Un seul cœur, ardent et fier,
Luttons tous, tant que nous sommes,
Pour notre vieux pays noir.

Congolais, debout fièrement partout,
Proclamons l’union de notre nation,
Oublions ce qui nous divise,
Soyons plus unis que jamais,
Vivons pour notre devise:
Unité, travail, progrès!
Vivons pour notre devise:
Unité, travail, progrès!

Et s’il nous faut mourir, en somme
Qu’importe puisque nos enfants,
Partout, pourront dire comme
On triomphe en combattant,
Et dans le moindre village
Chantent sous nos trois couleurs.

Congolais, debout fièrement partout,
Proclamons l’union de notre nation,
Oublions ce qui nous divise,
Soyons plus unis que jamais,
Vivons pour notre devise:
Unité, travail, progrès!
Vivons pour notre devise:
Unité, travail, progrès!

Besi Kôngo

Lêlo kukiele, ntângu yitûkidi
Nsi’eto Kôngo yitemokene.
Tômbe kia mpimpa kisukidi,
Kyêse kiakinene beni.
Tuyimbila ye pasa
N’kûng’a kimpwanza.

Besi Kôngo, konso ntangu tubunda ntulu,
Tuyalangasa bumosi ye kintwâdi kia nsi’eto,
Mana ma kutumwangasanga tuvilakana mo,
Tukala bonso mika mya mbwa,
Tusadila lutumu lua nsi’eto:
Bumosi, Kisalu, Ntomosono!
Tusadila lutumu lua nsi’eto:
Bumosi, Kisalu, Ntomosono!

Tûka ku mfînda tê ye kuna m’futa,
Tûka ku m’futa te ye kuna m’bur,
N’kâng’umosi, môy’omosi,
Na ngwi muna n’tim’amosi,
Tunwâna mvita bûtuna mu luzingu,
Mu kuma kya nsi’eto ya ndômbe.

Besi Kôngo, konso ntangu tubunda ntulu,
Tuyalangasa bumosi ye kintwâdi kia nsi’eto,
Mana ma kutumwangasanga tuvilakana mo,
Tukala bonso mika mya mbwa,
Tusadila lutumu lua nsi’eto:
Bumosi, Kisalu, Ntomosono!
Tusadila lutumu lua nsi’eto:
Bumosi, Kisalu, Ntomosono!

Vo mpe fwa tufweti fwa
Wonga mpia, kadi bâna beto,
Sibata kuakulu nsângu
Muna mvita kaka banunginanga
Ye kuna kônso kônso belo
Si bayimbila ku nsi’a bendela dya nitu tatu.

Besi Kôngo, konso ntangu tubunda ntulu,
Tuyalangasa bumosi ye kintwâdi kia nsi’eto,
Mana ma kutumwangasanga tuvilakana mo,
Tukala bonso mika mya mbwa,
Tusadila lutumu lua nsi’eto:
Bumosi, Kisalu, Ntomosono!
Tusadila lutumu lua nsi’eto:
Bumosi, Kisalu, Ntomosono!

The Congolese

On this day the sun rises
And our Congo stands resplendent.
A long night is ended,
A great happiness has come.
Let us all, with wild joyfulness, sing
The song of freedom.

Arise, Congolese, proud every man,
Proclaim the unity of our nation.
Let us forget what divides us
And become more united than ever.
Let us live our motto:
Unity, work, progress.
Let us live our motto:
Unity, work, progress.

From the forest to the bush,
From the bush to the ocean,
One people, one soul,
One heart, ardent and proud.
Let us all fight, every one of us,
For our black country.

Arise, Congolese, proud every man,
Proclaim the unity of our nation.
Let us forget what divides us
And become more united than ever.
Let us live our motto:
Unity, work, progress.
Let us live our motto:
Unity, work, progress.

And if we have to die,
What does it really matter? Our children
Everywhere will be able to say how
Triumph comes through battle,
And in the smallest village
Sing beneath our three colours.

Arise, Congolese, proud every man,
Proclaim the unity of our nation.
Let us forget what divides us
And become more united than ever.
Let us live our motto:
Unity, work, progress.
Let us live our motto:
Unity, work, progress.
