Aruba Dushi Tera

Aruba Precious Country

Aruba patria aprecia
nos cuna venera
chikito y simpel bo por ta
pero si respeta.

O, Aruba, dushi tera
nos baranca tan stima
nos amor p'abo t'asina grandi
cu n'tin nada pa kibre (bis)

Bo playanan tan admira
cu palma tur dorna
bo escudo y bandera ta
orgullo di nos tur!


Grandeza di bo pueblo ta
su gran cordialidad
cu Dios por guia y conserva
su amor pa libertad!

Aruba beloved home
our venerated cradle
though small and simple you may be
you are indeed esteemed.

Aruba our dear country
our rock so well beloved
our love for you is so strong
that nothing can destroy it. (repeat)

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


The greatness of our people
is their great cordiality
and may God guide and preserve
its love for freedom.
