Curacaoan anthem lyrics (English 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 nations.
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) Our fatherland we demonstrate
honour and loyalty,
as to the flag
the union of our nation.
Our lives would be little
to give for 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 a child of Curaçao!
