Suriname National Anthem in Dutch:

God zij met ons Suriname
Hij verheff’ons heerlijk land
Hoe wij hier ook samen kwamen
Aan zijn grond zijn wij verpand
Werkend houden w’in gedachten
Recht en waarheid maken vrij,
Al wat goed is te betrachten
Dat geeft aan ons land waardij.

Opo, kondreman un’ opo!

Wans’ ope tata komopo
Wi mu’ seti kondre bun.
Strey de f’ strey, wi no sa frede.
Gado de wi fesiman.
Eri libi te na dede
Wi sa feti gi Sranan.

Suriname National Anthem in English:

God be with our Suriname
May He elevate our lovely land
How we came here together
We are dedicated to its soil
Working we keep in mind,
Justice and truth will set free
All that is good to devote oneself to
Will give value to our land
Rise countrymen, rise!

The soil of Suriname is calling you.
Wherever our ancestors came from
We should take care of our country.
There is a fight to fight, we shall not be afraid.
God is our leader.
Our whole life until death,
We shall fight for Suriname.
