Nauruan lyrics


Nauru bwiema, ngabena ma auwe.

Ma dedaro bwe dogum, mo otata bet egom.

Atsin ngago bwien okor, ama bagadugu

Epoa ngabuna ri nan orre bet imur.

Ama memag ma nan epodan eredu won engiden,

Miyan aema ngeiyin ouge,

Nauru eko dogin!

English translation


Nauru our homeland, the land we dearly love,

We all pray for you and we also praise your name.

Since long ago you have been the home of our great forefathers

And will be for generations yet to come.

We all join in together to honour your flag,

And we shall rejoice together and say;

Nauru for evermore!
