Merci Bon Dieu

This song is by Harry Belafonte and appears on the album Collection (2001).

Mèci bon Dié,
Gadé tout ça la natu poté pou nous.
Mèci bon Dié,
Gadé couman la mizè fini pou nous.
La pli tombé,
Mai poussé,
Toute ti moune qui grand gout pralé mangé.
An nous dansé Congo,
An nous dansé Pétro,
Papa bon Dié di nan ciel la mizè fini pou nous.

English Translation:
Thank you, God,
Look at all that nature has brought us.
Thank you, God,
Look how misery has ended for us.
The rain has fallen,
The corn has grown,
All the children that were hungry are going to eat.
Let's dance the Congo,
Let's dance the Petro,
God said in Heaven
That misery has ended for us.
