Cote d Ivoire National Anthem
Song of Abidjan (L’Abidjanaise)

Lyrics
We salute you, O land of hope,
Country of hospitality;
Thy full gallant legions
Have restored thy dignity.

Beloved Ivory Coast, thy sons,
Humble builders of thy greatness,
All not mustered together for thy glory,
In joy will we construct thee.

Humble citizens of the Ivory Coast, the country call us.
If we have brought back liberty peacefully,
It will be our duty to be an example

Of the hope promised to humanity,
Forging unitedly in new faith
The Fatherland of true brotherhood.
