El Salvador National Anthem

El Salvador National Anthem
National Anthem of El Salvador (Himno Nacional de El Salvador)

Lyrics
Proudly saluting the homeland,
Their sons we can be called
And swear life valliantly
Without rest to its good consecrate

In the supreme word of peace,
El Salvador has always nobly dreamed.
To achieve this has been her eternal endeavor,
To keep it, her greatest glory.
With inviolable faith, she eagerly follows
The way of progress
In order to fulfil her high destiny
And achieve a happy future.
A stern barrier protects her
Against the clash of vile disloyalty,
Ever since the day when her lofty banner,
In letters of blood, wrote “Freedom”,
Wrote “Freedom”, wrote “Freedom”.

Freedom is her dogma and her guide;
A thousand times she has defended it,
And as many times has she repelled
The hateful power of atrocious tyranny.
Her history has been bloody and sad,
Yet at the same time sublime and brilliant,
A source of legitimate glory
And a great lesson in Spartan pride.
Her innate bravery shall not waver:
In every man there is an immortal hero
Who knows how to maintain the level
Of the proverbial valour of old.

All are self-denying and faithful
To the tradition of warlike ardour
With which they have always reaped fame
By saving the motherland’s honour.
To respect the rights of others
And base her actions on right and justice
Is for her, without infamous intrigue,
The constant and most firm ambition.
And in following this line she persists,
Dedicating her tenacious efforts
In giving hard battle for battle;
Her happiness is found in peace.
