Ni-Vanuatu anthem lyrics (English translation)
We, we, we are happy to proclaim
We, we, we are the people of Vanuatu
God has given us this land,
We have great cause for rejoicing
We are strong and we are free in this land
We are all brothers
There were many ways before
There are many ways today
But we are all one
Despite our many ways
We know there is plenty of work to be done
We work hard on our many islands
God helps us in our work
He is Our Father!
