Original Lyrics in French

O Centrafrique, ô berceau des Bantous!
Reprends ton droit au respect, à la vie!
Longtemps soumis, longtemps brimé par tous,
Mais de ce jour brisant la tyrannie.
Dans le travail, l’ordre et la dignité,
Tu reconquiers ton droit, ton unité,
Et pour franchir cette étape nouvelle,
De nos ancêtres la voix nous appelle.

Au travail dans l’ordre et la dignité,
Dans le respect du droit et dans l’unité,
Brisant la misère et la tyrannie,
Brandissant l’étendard de la Patrie.

O Central Africa, cradle of the Bantu!
Take back your right to respect, to life!

Through work, order, and dignity,
You reconquer your right, your unity,
And to pass through this new step,
The voice of our ancestors calls us.

To work in order and dignity,
In the respect of rights and in unity,
Breaking poverty and tyranny,
Raising the flag of the Fatherland.
