NATIONAL ANTHEM*

"La Dessalinienne"*

March on! For ancestors and country;
United march, United march;
Loyal subjects all remain,
And lords of our domains
United march, March on!

For sacred soil,
For sires of old
We gladly toil.
When teem field and wold
The soul is strong and bold.
We gladly toil, we gladly toil
For sacred soil,
For sires of old.

For land we love
And sires of old
We give our sons.
Free, happy, and bold,
One brotherhood we'll hold.
We give our sons, we give our sons
For land we love
And sires of old.

For those who gave
For country all,
God of the brave,
To thee, O God, we call;
Without thee we must fall,
God of the brave, God of the brave.
For those who gave
For country all.

For flag on high
For Native land
'Tis fine to die.
Our traditions demand
Be ready, heart and hand,
'Tis fine to die, 'tis find to die
For flag on high,
For Native land.
