Cape Verde National Anthem

Cape Verde National Anthem
Song of Freedom (Cantico da Liberdade)

Lyrics
Sing, brother
Sing, my brother
For Freedom is a hymn
And Man a certainty

With dignity, bury the seed
In the dust of the naked island
In life’s precipice
Hope is as big as the sea
Which embraces us
Sentinel of the seas and winds
Unwavering
between stars
and the Atlantic
sing the Chant of Freedom

Sing, brother
sing, my brother
for Freedom is a hymn
and Man a certainty.
