Cape Verde National Anthem Lyrics

Portuguese Lyrics

Canta, irmao
canta meu irmao
que a Liberdade e hino
e o Homem a certeza.
Com dignidade, enterra a semente
no pó da ilha nua
No despenhadeiro da vida a esperança e
do tamanho do mar
que nos abraça
Sentinela de mares e ventos
perseverante
entre estrelas
e o Atlantico
entoa o cantico da Liberdade
Canta, irmao
canta meu irmao
que a Liberdade e hino
e o Homem a certeza.

English Translation

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.
