Venezuelan anthem lyrics (English translation)
Glory to the brave people
who shook off the yoke,
Respecting the law,
virtue and honour.
(repeat all)
ג€œDown with chains!ג€ (2x)
The gentleman yelled; (2x)
And the poor man in his hovel
For Freedom implored.
Upon this holy name
Trembled in great dread
The vile selfishness
That had once prevailed.
(repeat last four lines)
(repeat last two lines)
Letג€™s scream out aloud: (2x)
“Death to oppression!” (2x)
Oh, loyal countrymen:
Strength is in unity;
And from the Empyrean
The Supreme Author
A sublime spirit
To the people blew.
(repeat last four lines)
(repeat last two lines)
United by bonds (2x)
That Heaven has formed, (2x)
The entire America
Exists as a Nation;
And if ever despotism
Raises again its voice,
Then follow the example
That Caracas gave.
(repeat last four lines)
(repeat last two lines)
