Come, let's weave our freedom
strong arms that tear the ground
in the shade of gallantry
let's unfurl our rebelry
and in this land let's plant as brothers!

Come, let's fight fist-raised
our strength leads us to build
our homeland new and strong
erected on the people's power.

Arms raised, let's tell our history
with strength our oppressors smother and
let's raise the coloured flag
let's wake this sleeping motherland
for us the workers will tomorrow stand!

Our strength once rescued by the flame
of hope in triumph yet to come
from this fight we'll forge for sure
a peasant homeland free for workers
in the end will shine our star!
