LYRICS TO ALGERIAN NATIONAL ANTHEM

We swear by the lightning that destroys, 

By the streams of generous blood being shed, 

By the bright flags that wave, 

Flying proudly on the high djebels, 

That we are in revolt, whether to live or to die, 

We are determined that Algeria should live,

So be our witness -be our witness -be our witness! 


We are soldiers in revolt for truth 

And we have fought for our independence. 

When we spoke, nobody listened to us, 

So we have taken the noise of gunpowder as our rhythm 

And the sound of machine guns as our melody, 

We are determined that Algeria should live,

So be our witness -be our witness -be our witness! 


From our heroes we shall make an army come to being, 

From our dead we shall build up a glory, 

Our spirits shall ascend to immortality 

And on our shoulders we shall raise the Standard. 

To the nation's Liberation Front we have sworn an oath, 

We are determined that Algeria should live,

So be our witness -be our witness -be our witness! 


The cry of the Fatherland sounds from the battlefields. 

Listen to it and answer the call! 

Let it be written with the blood of martyrs 

And be read to future generations. 

Oh, Glory, we have held out our hand to you, 

We are determined that Algeria should live,

So be our witness -be our witness -be our witness!
