Fatshe leno la rona
Ke mpho ya Modimo,
Ke boswa jwa borraetsho;
A le nne ka kagiso.

La tšhaba ya Botswana,
Ka kutlwano le kagisano,
E bopagantswe mmogo.

Chorus

Tsogang, tsogang! Banna, tsogang!
Emang, basadi, emang, tlhagafalang!
Re kopane le go direla
Lefatshe la rona.

Blessed be this noble land,
Gift to us from God’s strong hand,
Heritage our fathers left to us;

And women close beside them stand,
Together we’ll work and serve
This land, this happy land!

This land, this happy land!
