National Anthem Of Curacao

Official Lyrics (in Papiamentu)

Himno di Kòrsou

Lanta nos bos ban kanta
Grandesa di Kòrsou;
Kòrsou isla chikitu,
baranka den laman!

Kòrsou nos ta stima bo
ariba tur nashon.
Bo gloia nos ta kanta
di henter nos kurason.

Nos pueblo tin su lucha,
ma semper nos tin fe
di logra den tur tempu
viktoria ku trabou!

Ban duna di nos parti
p’e isla prospera.
Laga nos uni forsa
p’asina triufa.

Nos patria nos ta demostra
onor i lealtat,
meskos na e bandera
union di nos nashon.

Nos bida lo ta poko
pa duna nos pais,
luchando uni pa libertat,
amor i komprenshon.

I ora nos ta leu fo’i kas
nos tur ta rekorda
Kòrsou, su solo i playanan,
orguyo di nos tur.

Laga nos gloria Kreado
tur tempu i sin fin,
k’El a hasi nos digno
di ta yu di Kòrsou!

English (unofficial) translation

Let’s raise our voice and sing
the grandeur of Curaçao;
Curaçao, small island,
a boulder in the sea!

Curaçao, we love you
above all nation.
Your glory we sing
with all our hearts.

Our people have their struggle
but we always have our faith
to accomplish always
victory through labour!

Let us do our part
for the island’s prosperity.
Let us unite forces
so we can triumph.

(To) Out fatherland we demonstrate
honour and loyalty,
as to the flag
the union of our nation.

Our lives would be little
to give our country,
fighting united for liberty,
love and understanding.

And when we are far from home
we all recall
Curaçao, its sun and beaches
the pride of us all.

Let us praise our Creator
always and forever,
for He has made us worthy
to be Curaçaoan!
