“Lesōthō Fatše La Bo-Ntat’a Rōna” (“Lesotho, Land of Our Fathers”) is National Anthem of Lesotho. The lyrics were written by François Coillard, a French missionary, and the music is taken from an 1820 hymnal composed by Ferdinand-Samuel Laur. It has been used as the national anthem since the 1960s. The original composition the national anthem was based on had four verses though only the first and last ones ended up being adopted.

Lesotho fatshe la bo-ntata rona;
Hara mafatshe ohle le letle ke lona;

Lesotho, land of our Fathers,
Among the lands it is the most beautiful.
It is where we were born,
It is where we grew up–
We love it.
God, please protect Lesotho.
Spare it conflict, and tribulation–
Oh, this land,
Land of our Fathers,
May it have the peace.
