Malian anthem lyrics (English translation)
At your call, Mali
for your prosperity
Loyal towards your destiny
we will be all united,
One people, one struggle, one faith,
For African unity…
The chorus is as follows:
For Africa and for you, Mali,
Our banner shall be liberty.
For Africa and for you, Mali,
Our fight shall be for unity.
Oh, Mali of today,
Oh, Mali of tomorrow,
The fields are flowering with hope
And hearts are thrilling with confidence.
