Sao Tomean anthem lyrics (English translation)
Chorus:
Total independence,
Glorious song of the people,
Total independence,
Sacred hymn of combat.
 
Dynamism
In the national struggle,
Eternal oath
To the sovereign country of São Tomé and Príncipe.
Warriors in the war without weapons,
Live flame in the soul of the people,
Congregating the sons of the islands
Around the Immortal Fatherland.
Total independence, total and complete,
Building, in progress and peace,
With the heroic hands of the people,
The happiest nation on earth.
 
Chorus
 
Working, struggling, struggling and conquering,
We go ahead with giant steps
In the crusade of the African peoples,
Raising the national flag.
Voice of the people, present, present and united,
Strong beat in the heart of hope
To be a hero in the hour of peril,
A hero of the Nation's resurgence.
 
Chorus
 
Dynamism
In the national struggle,
Eternal oath
To the sovereign country of São Tomé and Príncipe.
