Translation of Haitian Creole text:

I see the love flow in the eyes of the mother;

Tenderness and joy have overcome the father.

In the eyes of their very first born,

I discover hope, I contemplate the future.


He is beautiful, full of life and full of promise;

He is beautiful, full of life, and a carrier of hope.

Akeem, Akeem… the voice of the future.

Akeem, Akeem… Akeem is his name.


Life on the wings of love

Once again burst out the sweet symphony.

This splendor explodes time

For us to discover the buds of spring.


He is beautiful, full of life and full of promise;

He is beautiful, full of life, and a carrier of hope.

Akeem, Akeem… the voice of the future.

Akeem, Akeem… Akeem is his name.


The birth of a child is an expression of love,

A carrier of joy, of hope and of peace.

The birth of a child renews the world

And the voices of the future will sing forever…
