Translation of Haitian Creole text:

2. LIBERTY


From the first day, we have been fighting,

To free ourselves from all dreadful chaos.

We fought, we struggled like raging dogs,

We were victorious one fine January day.


Liberty is freedom!


The villains were stunned by this phenomenon;

Slavery was vanquished in the country of Haiti.

Because we are all citizens of this blessed earth,

We must not inflict suffering unto others.


Liberty is freedom!


The Almighty created all men equal;

Deep in my heart, in the depths of my soul, I read these words.

If a villain thinks he can take our dignity,

We will always engage another “eighteen-o-four”. (1804).


There is no reason for the strong to abuse the weak,

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.

If we want peace, we must live like brothers.

“With many hands, the load is light”, that is Haiti’s slogan.


Liberty is freedom!
