Namibia, Land of the Brave: Lyrics
By Axali Doëseb

Namibia land of the brave
Freedom fight we have won
Glory to their bravery
Whose blood waters our freedom.

We give our love and loyalty
Together in unity
Contrasting beautiful Namibia
Namibia our country

Beloved land
of savannahs
Hold high the banner of liberty

Chorus:
Namibia our country
Namibia motherland
We love thee
