Eritrean anthem lyrics (English translation)
Eritrea, Eritrea, Eritrea,
Her arch-enemy destroyed wailingly,
her sacrifices vindicated by freedom.
She holds firmly her goal,
her name has come to mean perseverance and steadfastness,
Eritrea, the pride of the oppressed people,
is a testament that truth prevails.
Eritrea, Eritrea,
has taken her rightful place in the world.
The supreme dedication that brought her liberation,
will serve to rebuild her and make her green,
We shall honour her with progress,
It is our legacy to embellish her.
Eritrea, Eritrea,
has taken her rightful place in the world.
