The following is the English Translation of the anthem.
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!
