Original Lyrics in French

Auprès du grand Niger puissant
Qui rend la nature plus belle,
Soyons fiers et reconnaissants
De notre liberté nouvelle.
Evitons les vaines querelles
Afin d’épargner notre sang,
Et que les glorieux accents
De notre race soit sans tutelle.

Debout Niger! Debout!
Que notre oeuvre féconde
Rajeunisse le cœur de ce vieux continent!
Et que ce chant s’entende
Aux quatre coins du monde
Comme le cri d’un peuple équitable et vaillant!

Which makes nature more beautiful,

And may the glorious voices
Of our race be untethered.

Arise Niger! Arise!

Renew the heart of this old continent!
And may this song be heard
At the four corners of the world
Like the cry of a fair and valiant people!
