We people of Micronesia

Exercise sov'reignty.

Establish our Constitution

Of Federated States.

Affirm our common wish to live

In peace and harmony.

To preserve heritage of past

And promise of future.





Make one nation Of many isles,

Diversity Of our cultures.

Our diff'rences Will enrich us,

Waters bring us All together.

They don't sep'rate.

They sustain us.

Our Islands Our nation

Get larger And make us stronger

And make us much stronger.




Our Ancestors made their homes here,

Displaced no other man,

We who remain wish unity,

Been ruled we seek freedom,

Our days began when men explored

Seas in rafts and canoes.

Our nation born when men voyaged

The seas via the stars.








The world itself is an island

We seen from all nations.

Peace, friendship, co-operation,

love and humanity.

With this Constitution,

we now become proud guardian

Of our beautiful islands.
