Blessed be this noble land,
Gift to us from God's strong hand,
Heritage our fathers left to us.
May it always be at peace.

Awake, awake, O men, awake!
And women close beside them stand,
Together we'll work and serve
This land, this happy land!

For the nation of Botswana.

We'll remain at peace as one.
