Cameroon Anthem Lyrics

O Cameroon, Thou Cradle of our Fathers,
Holy Shrine where in our midst they now repose,
Their tears and blood and sweat thy soil did water,
On thy hills and valleys once their tillage rose.
Dear Fatherland, thy worth no tongue can tell!
How can we ever pay thy due?
Thy welfare we will win in toil and love and peace,
Will be to thy name ever true!

Chorus: Land of Promise, land of Glory!
Thou, of life and joy, our only store!
Thine be honour, thine devotion,
And deep endearment, for evermore.

From Shari, from where the Mungo meanders
From along the banks of lowly Boumba Stream,
Muster thy sons in union close around thee,
Mighty as the Buea Mountain be their team;
Instil in them the love of gentle ways,
Regret for errors of the past;
Foster, for Mother Africa, a loyalty
That true shall remain to the last.

Chorus of Cameroon Anthem: Land of Promise, land of Glory!
Thou, of life and joy, our only store!
Thine be honour, thine devotion,
And deep endearment, for evermore.

Hymne National du Cameroun (Lyrics)

O Cameroun berceau de nos ancètres,
va debout et jaloux de ta liberté,
comme un soleil ton drapeau fier doit etre,
un symbole ardent de foi et d'unité,

Chorus of Cameroon Anthem:
Chère Patrie, Terre cherie,
Tu es notre seul et vrai bonheur,
Notre joie,notre vie,
En toi l'amour et le grand honneur.


Que tous tes enfants du Nord et Sud,
De l'Est a l'Ouest soit tout amour,
Te servir que ce soit le seul but,
pour remplir leur devoir toujour;

Chorus:
Chère Patrie, Terre cherie,
Tu es notre seul et vrai bonheur,
Notre joie,notre vie,
En toi l'amour et le grand honneur.
