Salut à toi, pays de nos aïeux,
Toi qui les rendus forts,
Paisibles et joyeux,
Cultivant vertu, vaillance,
Pour la prospérité.
Que viennent les tyrans,
Ton cœur soupire vers la liberté.
Togo debout! Luttons sans défaillance,
Vainquons ou mourons, mais dans la dignité.
Grand Dieu, toi seul nous a exaltés,
Du Togo pour la prospérité.
Togolais viens, bâtissons la cité.
