Lyrics[edit]

In French - En français[edit]

Peuple Tchadien, debout et à l'ouvrage !
Tu as conquis la terre et ton droit ;
Ta liberté naîtra de ton courage.
Lève les yeux, l'avenir est à Toi.

Ô mon Pays, que Dieu te prenne en garde,
Que tes voisins admirent tes enfants.
Joyeux, pacifique, avance en chantant,
Fidèle à tes anciens qui te regardent.

Peuple Tchadien, debout et à l'ouvrage !
Tu as conquis la terre et ton droit ;
Ta liberté naîtra de ton courage.
Lève les yeux, l'avenir est à Toi.

In Arabic - باللغة العربية[edit]

شعب تشاد قم إلي العمل
إسترديت أرضاك وحقاك
وحرياتك تولودك من شجاعتك
إرفع عينيك فالمستقبل لك

يابلادي فليحفظك الله
فليحفظ جيرانك وأبنائك أيه
المحيط الساري تقدم وأنت تنشد
وافيا لأسلافك الذين ينظرون إليك

شعب تشاد قم إلي العمل
إسترديت أرضاك وحقاك
وحرياتك تولودك من شجاعتك
إرفع عينيك فالمستقبل لك

In English[edit]

People of Chad, arise and to work!
You have conquered the soil and won your rights;
Your freedom will be born of your courage.
Lift up your eyes, the future is yours.

O my Country, may God protect you,
May your neighbours admire your children.
Joyful, peaceful, advance as you sing,
Faithful to your fathers who are watching you.

People of Chad, arise and to work!
You have conquered the soil and won your rights;
Your freedom will be born of your courage.
Lift up your eyes, the future is yours.
