Argentinian National Anthem



Argentina National Anthem Lyrics

First Part
Oid, mortales el grito sagrado
libertad, libertad, libertad

Oid el ruido de rotas cadenas,
que responde a la noble igualdad.
Ya su trono dignisimo abrieron,
Ya su trono dignisimo abrieron,
las Provincias Unidas del sur,
las Provincias Unidas del sur,
y los libres del mundo responden
al gran Pueblo Argentino, Salud
al gran Pueblo Argentino, Salud !

Y los libres del mundo responden:
Al gran Pueblo Argentino, Salud !

Second Part
Sean eternos los laureles
que supimos conseguir,
que supimos conseguir !
Coronados de gloria vivamos
Oh, oh, juremos con gloria morir
Oh, juremos con gloria morir,
Oh, juremos con gloria morir !!

English Translation
Mortals! Hear the sacred cry;
Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!
Hear the noise of broken chains.
See noble Equality enthroned.
The United Provinces of the South
Have now displayed their worthy throne.
And the free peoples of the world reply;
We salute the great people of Argentina!
(repeat)

And the free peoples of the world reply;
We salute the great people of Argentina!
(repeat previous two lines)

CHORUS
May the laurels be eternal
That we knew how to win.
Let us live crowned with glory,
Or swear to die gloriously.
(repeat three times)

Lyrics: Vincente López y Planes, 1813
