Aruban anthem lyrics (English translation)
Aruba appreciated native land
our venerated cradle
you may be small and simple
but yet you are respected.
Oh Aruba dear country
our rock so beloved
our love for you is so strong
that nothing can destroy it. (repeat)
Your beaches so much admired
with palm trees all adorned
your coat of arms and flag
is the proudness of us all!
The greatness of our people
is their great cordiality
that God may guide and preserve
his love for liberty!
