Welcome To Aruba

Aruba National Anthem

Aruba sweet land

Aruba appreciated homeland
our beloved native soil
even though you are small and simple
you will be respected.

Chorus:
Oh Aruba dear country
our rock so beloved
our love for you is so strong
that nothing can destroy it.

Your beaches so much admired
with palm trees all adorned
your coat of arms and flag
the pride of us all

Chorus
The greatness of our people
is their great cordiality
that God may guide and preserve
his love for liberty!
