Congo Democratic Republic Flag
Congo, Democratic Republic National Anthem
Arise Congolese (Debout Congolais)
United by fate,
United in the struggle for independence,
Let us hold up our heads, so long bowed,
And now, for good, let us keep moving boldly ahead, in peace.
Oh, ardent people, by hard work we shall build,
In peace, a country more beautiful than before.
Countrymen, sing the sacred hymn of your solidarity,
Proudly salute the golden emblem of your sovereignty, Congo.
Blessed gift of our forefathers,
Oh beloved country,
We shall people your soil and ensure your greatness.
Oh gentle sun of 30 June,
Be witness of the immortal oath of freedom
That we pass on to our children forever.
