Ise wa fun ile wa
Fun Ile Ibi Wa

Ka gbee ga
Ka gbee ga fun aye ri

Igbagbo wa ni pe
Bati beru la bomo

Ka sise ka jo la

Isokan ati ominira
Ni ke je ka maa lepa
Tesiwaju f opo ire
Ati ohun to dara

Omo Oodua dide
Bo si ipo eto re
Iwo ni imole
Gbogbo Adulawo

English

There is work for us to do
For our motherland
Let’s uplift it, let’s uplift it
Uplift it for the world to see

Our belief is that;
The way a child was born, so was a slave
Let’s work, let’s labour
Let’s work, so we can together prosper

Unity and freedom
Should be our pursuit
March on for plenty success
And all that is good

The child of Oodua arise
Take your rightful place
For you are the light
Of the black race
