Burundi National Anthem in Kirundi:

Burundi bwacu, Burundi buhire,
Shinga icumu mu mashinga,
Gaba intahe y’ubugabo ku bugingo.
Warapfunywe ntiwapfuye,
Warahabishijwe ntiwahababuka.
Uhagurukana, Uhagurukana, Uhagurukana ubugabo burikukira.
Komerwa amashi n’amakungu, uhabwe impundu n’abawe,
Isamirane mu mashinga, Isamirane mu mashinga.

Burundi bwacu, ragi rya basokuru,
Ramutswa intahe n’ibihugu,
Ufatanije ishaka n’ubuhizi;
Vuza impundu wiganzuye uwakuganza uwakuganza.

Burundi bwacu, nkora mutima kuri twese,
Tugutuye amaboko, umutima n’ubuzima,
Imana yakuduhaye ikudutungire.
Horana ubumwe n’abagabo n’itekane.
Sagwa n’urweze, sagwa n’amahoro meza.

Burundi National Anthem in French:

Cher Burundi, ô doux pays,
Prends place dans le Concert des nations.
En tout bien, tout honneur, accédé à l’indépendance.
Reçois donc le compliment des nations,
Agrée l’hommage de tes enfants.
Qu’à travers l’univers retentisse ton nom.

Cher Burundi, héritage sacré de nos aïeux,
Reconnu digne de te gouverner
Au courage tu allies le sentiment de l’honneur.
Chante la gloire de ta liberté reconquise.

Cher Burundi, digne objet de notre plus tendre armour,
A ton noble service nous vouons nos bras, nos cœurs et nos vies.
Veuille Dieu, qui nous a fait don de toi, te conserver à notre vénération.
Sous l’egide de l’Unité,
Dans la paix, la joie et la prospérité.

Burundi National Anthem Lyrics in English:

Our Burundi, gentle country,
Take your place in the concert of nations,
Acceding to independence with honourable intentions.
Wounded and bruised, you have remained master of yourself.

When the hour came, you arose,
Lifting yourself proudly into the ranks of free peoples.
Receive, then, the congratulations of the nations
And the homage of your sons and daughters.
May your name ring out through the universe.

Our Burundi, sacred heritage from our forefathers,
Recognized as worthy of self-government,
With your courage you also have a sense of honour.
Sing the glory of liberty conquered again.

Our Burundi, worthy of our tenderest love,
We vow to your noble service our hands and hearts and lives.
May God, who gave you to us, keep you for us to venerate,
Under the shield of unity,
In peace, joy and prosperity.
