The Song

HOLD ON [4 HAITI]
Steel Pulse

(Creole translation here >>)

I know it’s easy to say
Don’t let this earthquake get you down
As you hold your head and bawl
In times of sorrow

I know it’s easy to say
When your back is up against the wall
Don’t be forsaken no
Cause there’s tomorrow

CHORUS
Hold on Hold on For Haiti

Yes I know it’s easy to say
That the world is right there by your side
As we all will share with you
Your devastation

I know it’s easy to say
You got to keep your head up high
But we truly sympathise
With your frustration

CHORUS II
Up ye mighty race
Be warm to our embrace
Want to show you how much we care
Up ye mighty race
You cannot be replaced
Want to show how much we care

HOLD ON and MOVE ON

I know that life is for the living
And can be so unforgiving
Cause often times we think there’s no love
Just keep your self believing
And bear witness to your uprising
Together we’ve got problems to solve

CHORUS III
HOLD ON and MOVE ON
HOLD ON yeh BE STRONG for Haiti

360° for Haiti
You are Africa’s first descendants
To win struggle for independence
For your fortitude and resilience
Toussaint L’Ouverture’s investment
You can’t afford to be redundant
You can’t afford to be redundant
You can’t afford to be redundant

Kenbe fèm pou Ayiti - Steel Pulse

Mwen konnen sa fasil pou di
Pa kite goudougoudou fow santi w’ blèm
Pandan ou kenbe tèt ou ap redi
Nan moman problèm

Mwen konnen sa fasil pou di
Lè w’ pa gen kote pou ou vire
Kenbe fò pa lage
Paske ap toujou gen demen

Chorus
Kenbe kenbe fèm Ayiti
Wi mwen konnen sa fasil pou di
Rès monn nan avè w’ tout tan
Paske nou santi doulè w’
Ak devastasyon w’

Mwen konnen sa fasil pou di
Pou kenbe tèt ou wo
Men tout bon nou konprann
tout fristrasyon w’ (pa vraiment du creole ca)

Chorus II
Kenbe kenbe fèm yeh pou Ayiti
Kenbe fèm pa janm lage yeah Ayiti

Sub Chorus
Kanpe ye gran ras
Pran kouraj lè n’ap ba w’ akolad
Gade jan n’ap pran ka w’
Kanpe ho gran ras

Yo paka ranplase w’
Konnen byen ke ou sou kè n’

Kenbe fèm Ayiti

Mwen konnen lavi se pou vivan
E li ka san pitye
Nou konn panse pa gen lanmou
Men kontinye kwè
E w’ap byen sezi wè
Ke ansanm n’ap rezoud tout problèm

Chorus III
Kenbe kenbe fèm Ayiti
Kenbe fèm avanse Ayiti

Kanpe ye gran ras
Pran kouraj lè n’ap ba w’ akolad
Gade jan n’ap pran ka w’
Kanpe ho gran ras

Yo paka ranplase w’
Konnen byen ke ou sou kè n’

Kenbe fèm avanse
Kenbe fèm fòk ou fò Ayiti
Pou Ayiti se on 360 degre
Di ye pou Ayiti

Ou se premye desandan Lafrik
Pou batay lendepandans
Pou fòs ou ak kouraj ou
Nan non Tousen Louvèti
Pa kite sa menm jan
Pa kite sa menm jan.
