National Anthem Of Burundi

Here is the National Anthem of Burundi

Burundi Bwâcu, Burundi buhire,
Shinga icùmu mu mashinga,
Gaba intahe y’ùbugabo ku bugingo.
Warápfunywe ntíwapfùye,
Waráhabishijwe ntíwahababuka,
Uhagurukana, uhagurukana, uhagurukana, ubugabo urîkukira.
Komerwamashyí n’ámakùngu,
Habwa impundu nâbâwe,
Isamírane mu mashinga, isamírane mu mashinga,

Burundi bwâcu, rági ry’ábasôkùru,
Ramutswa intahe n’íbihùgu,
Ufatanije ishyaka n’ubù hizi;
Vuza impundu wiganzuye uwakùganza uwakùganza.

Burundi bwâcu, nkóramùtima kurí twese,
Tugutuye amabóko, umítima n’ùbuzima,
Imâna yakùduhaye ikudùtungire.
Horana ubumwe n’ábagabo n’ítekane.
Sagwa n’ùrweze, sagwa n’ámahóro mezá.

English Translation
Our Burundi, gentle country,
Take your place in the concert of nations,
Acceding to independence with honourable intentions.
Wounded and bruised, you have remained master of yourself.

When the hour came, you arose,
Lifting yourself proudly into the ranks of free peoples.
Receive, then, the congratulations of the nations
And the homage of your sons and daughters.
May your name ring out through the universe.

Our Burundi, sacred heritage from our forefathers,
Recognized as worthy of self-government,
With your courage you also have a sense of honour.
Sing the glory of liberty conquered again.

Our Burundi, worthy of our tenderest love,
We vow to your noble service our hands and hearts and lives.
May God, who gave you to us, keep you for us to venerate,
Under the shield of unity,
In peace, joy and prosperity.
