Glory to thee, Motherland,
O motherland of mine.
Sweet is thy beauty,
Sweet is thy fragrance,
Around thee we gather

As one nation,
In peace, justice and liberty.
Beloved country, may God bless thee
For ever and ever.

    Gloire à toi Île Maurice,

    Comme un seul peuple,
    Une seule nation,
    En paix, justice et liberté,
    Pays bien aimé que Dieu te bénisse,
    Aujourd’hui et toujours.

    For your information: our national anthem was written by Jean-Georges Prosper and composed by Philippe Gentil.

    However, only the english versoin is recognised as the official one.
