Aruba patria aprecia
nos cuna venera
Chikito y simpel bo por ta
pero si respeta.

Chorus:
O, Aruba, dushi tera
nos baranca tan stima
Nos amor p’abo t’asina grandi
cu n’tin nada pa kibr'e, cu'n tin nada pa kibr'e.

Bo playanan tan admira
cu palma tur dorna
Bo escudo y bandera ta
orguyo di nos tur!

Chorus

Grandeza di bo pueblo ta
su gran cordialidad
Cu Dios por guia y conserva
su amor pa libertad!

Aruba appreciated native land
our venerated cradle
you may be small and simple
but yet you are respected.

Chorus:
Oh Aruba dear country
our rock so beloved
our love for you is so strong
that nothing can destroy it. (repeat)

Your beaches so much admired
with palm trees all adorned
your coat of arms and flag
is the proudness of us all!

Chorus

The greatness of our people
is their great cordiality
that God may guide and preserve
his love for liberty!

con palmeras todas adornadas
tu escudo y bandera
orgullo de todos nosotros son!

Aruba gewaardeerd inheems land
Onze vereerde wieg
U kunt klein en eenvoudig zijn
Maar toch gerespecteerd.

Chorus

Oh, Aruba, mooi land
Onze rots zo geliefd
Onze liefde voor u is zo sterk
Dat niets het kan vernietigen,
Dat niets het kan vernietigen.

Uw stranden zo bewonderd
Alle met palmbomen versierd
Uw wapen en uw vlag
Zijn de trots van iedereen!

Chorus

De grootsheid van onze mensen
Is hun geweldige hartelijkheid
Die God kan gidsen en bewaren
Zijn liefde voor vrijheid!
