East Timor National Anthem Lyrics

Portuguese Lyrics

Patria, Patria, Timor-Leste, nossa Nacao.
Gloria ao povo e aos herois da nossa libertacao.
Patria, Patria, Timor-Leste, nossa Nacao.
Gloria ao povo e aos herois da nossa libertacao.
Vencemos o colonialismo, gritamos:
abaixo o imperialismo.
Terra livre, povo livre,
nao, nao, nao à exploracao.
Avante unidos firmes e decididos.
Na luta contra o imperialismo
o inimigo dos povos, até à vitoria final.
Pelo caminho da revolucao.

English Translation

Fatherland, fatherland, East Timor our Nation
Glory to the people and to the heroes of our liberation
Fatherland, fatherland, East Timor our Nation
Glory to the people and to the heroes of our liberation
We vanquish colonialism, we cry:
Down with imperialism!
Free land, free people,
No, no to exploration.
Let us go forward, united, firm and determined
In the struggle against imperialism,
The enemy of people, until final victory,
Onward to revolution.
