Portugal National Anthem

Flag of PortugalPortugal National Anthem
The Portuguese Hymn (A Portuguesa)

Lyrics
Heroes of the sea, noble people,
Brave, immortal nation,
Raise today once more
Portugal’s splendor!
Amidst the mists of memory,
O Fatherland, the voice is heard
Of your egregious forefathers,
That shall lead you to victory!

To arms, to arms!
Over the land, over the sea,
To arms, to arms!
To fight for our Fatherland!
Against the cannons, march, march!

Hoist the undefeated Flag,
In the lively light of your sky!
May Europe cry out to the whole Earth:
Portugal has not perished
Your merry ground
The Ocean kisses, roaring with love,
And your victorious arm
Gave new worlds to the World!

Salute the Sun that rises
Over a gleeful future;
Let the echo of an offense
Be the sign for a comeback.
Rays of this strong dawn
Are like a mother’s kisses,
That keep us, sustain us,
Against the injuries of fate.
