Peuple Tchadien, debout et à l'ouvrage!

Tu as conquis la terre et ton droit;

Ta liberté naîtra de ton courage.

Lève les yeux, l'avenir est à Toi.



O mon Pays, que Dieu te prenne en garde,

Que tes voisins admirent tes enfants.

Joyeux, pacifique, avance en chantant,

Fidèle à tes anciens te regardent.







People of Chad, arise and take up the task!

You have conquered the soil and won your rights;

Your freedom will be born of your courage.

Lift up your eyes, the future is yours



Oh, my Country, may God protect you,

May your neighbours admire your children.

Joyful, peaceful, advance as you sing,

Faithful to your fathers who are watching you.
