For our country,
For our ancestors, United let us march.
Let there be no traitors in our ranks!
Let us be masters of our soil.
United let us march For our country,
For our ancestors.
For our forebears,
For our country Let us toil joyfully.
May the fields be fertile And our souls take courage.
Let us toil joyfully For our forebears,
For our country.
For our country And for our forefathers,
Let us train our sons.
Free, strong, and prosperous,
We shall always be as brothers.
Let us train our sons For our country And for our forefathers.
For our forebears,
For our country,
Oh God of the valiant!
Take our rights and our life Under your infinite protection,
Oh God of the valiant!
For our forebears,
For our country.
For the flag,
For our country To die is a fine thing!
Our past cries out to us Have a strong soul!
