English Translation of Haitian Creole and French text:

Open your ears and listen,
Hear and listen, my friends.
Open your hearts and hear,
Hear and listen, my brothers:

Both you and I are full of dreams;
You help me and I help you.
That is how we will come to build a world anew.

“With many hands, the load is light.”
“One finger alone cannot eat okra.”
Knowledge and wealth are goods of humanity
That we must share in all friendliness.

These are statements that bring happiness;
Words of wisdom that make life harvest.

We are, each one of us, seeds of eternity
That sprout and bloom in our humanity.
Let us all work together for a world anew,
A world more humane, a universe of love.

Open your ears and listen,
Open your hearts and hear:
Hand in hand, without fighting,
Let us build this world anew.

A world anew… (Ayimagabo!) Let’s do it!

Hand in hand, without fighting,
We will build this world anew! 
(Ayimagabo!) Let’s do this!
