Lyrics

Spanish

— Coro —
Gloria al héroe inmortal que destaca
Su bizarra figura de la historia
Del cenit en la negra carraca
Como prodiga fuente de gloria.
 
— I —
Cruza el suelo infecundo
Donde fuerzas arteras
Arrebatan al mundo
Su don de libertad;
No respeta fronteras
En los pueblos que gimen;
Ante el odio y el crimen
Su deber es luchar.
 
 
— II —
Si España le fulmina
detrás de sus altares
Inglaterra ilumina
Su sendero inmortal;
Desprecia de los zares
La codicia ofrenda
Por que falta a su tienda
La dulce libertad.
 
 
— III —
Francia la abre sus brazos
Despedazado el pecho,
Por que a duros zarpazos
Un trono derrumbó;
Y el humano derecho
Al erguirse triunfante
Vio el esfuerzo pujante
De Miranda en acción.
 
 

English

— Chorus —
Glory to the inmortal hero that makes stand out
His bizarre figure from the history
Of the zenith in the dark Carraca
As a prodigal source of glory.
— I —
Crosses the sterile soil
Where cunning forces
Take away from the world
Its gift of liberty;
He doesn't respect frontiers
In the moaning towns;
Towards hate and crime
His duty is to fight.
(Chorus)
— II —
If Spain fulminates him
Behind its altars
England illuminates
His immortal path;
Rejects from the tzars
The greed offer
Because his tent is missing
The sweet liberty.
(Chorus)
— III —
France opens its arms for him
Shattered his chest,
Because against hard lashes
A throne demolished;
And the upright human
When erected triumphant
Saw the struggling effort
Of Miranda in action.
(Chorus)
