Anthem Lyrics

Music: Francisco Manuel da Silva (1795-1865)


Verses: Joaquim Osório Duque Estrada (1870-1927)





Ouviram do Ipiranga às margens plácidas


De um povo heróico o brado retumbante,


E o sol da liberdade, em raios fú lgidos,


Brilhou no céu da Pátria nesse instante.





Se o penhor dessa igualdade


Conseguimos conquistar com braço forte,


Em teu seio ó liberdade,


Desafia o nosso peito a própria morte!





Ó Pátria amada


Idolatrada


Salve! Salve!





Brasil de um sonho intenso, um raio vívido,


De amor e de esperança à terra desce


Se em teu formoso céu risonho e límpido


A imagem do Cruzeiro resplandece





Gigante pela própria natureza


És belo, és forte, impávido colosso,


E o teu futuro espelha essa grandeza,





Terra adorada!


Entre outras mil


És tu, Brasil,


Ó Pátria amada





Dos filhos deste solo és mãe gentil,


Pátria amada


Brasil!





II





Deitado eternamente em berço esplêndido,


ao som do mar e à luz do céu profundo,


Fulguras, ó Brasil, florão da América,


Iluminado ao sol do Novo Mundo!





Do que a terra mais garrida





Teus risonhos lindos campos tem mais flores,


"Nossos bosques tem mais vida"


"Nossa vida" no teu seio "mais amores"





Ó Pátria amada


Idolatrada


Salve! Salve!





Brasil, de amor eterno seja símbolo


O lábaro que ostentas estrelado,


E diga o verde-louro dessa flâmula


- paz no futuro e glória no passado -





Mas se ergues da justiça a clava forte,





Verás que um filho teu não foge à luta,


Nem teme, quem te adora, a própria morte,





Terra adorada!


Entre outras mil


És tu, Brasil,


Ó Pátria amada





Dos filhos deste solo és mãe gentil





Pátria amada


Brasil!

Anthem Lyrics English

The peaceful banks of the Ipiranga


Heard the resounding cry of an heroic people,


And the dazzling rays of the sun of Liberty


Bathed our country in their brilliant light.





If with strong arm we have succeeded


In winning a pledge of equality,


In thy bosom, O Liberty,


Our hearts will defy death itself!





O adored Fatherland,


Cherished and revered,


All hail! All Hail!





Brazil, a dream sublime, vivid ray of love and hope to earth descends,


Where in your clear, pure, beauteous skies


The image of the Southern Cross shines forth.





O country vast by nature,


Fair and strong, brave and colossus,


Thy future mirrors this thy greatness.





O land adored


Above all others,


'Tis thee Brazil,


Beloved Fatherland!





Thou art the gentle mother of the children of this soil,


Beloved land,


Brazil!





II





Laid out eternally in the splendor of nature,


In the sound of the sea and the light of heaven,


may thou shine, O Brazil, flower of America,


Illumined by the sun of the New World!





More flowers put forth in thy fair, smiling fields


Than the in the most gorgeously reputed lands;


"More life is to be found in the groves",


"More love in our lives" in thy embrace.





O adored Fatherland,


Cherished and revered,


All Hail!


All Hail!





May the star-scattered banner flown by thee,


Brazil, become the symbol of eternal love,


And may the green-gold flag proclaim always


- Peace in the future and glory in the past -





But if the mighty sword of justice drawn forth,


You will perceive your children, who adore you,


neither fear to fight,


nor flee from death itself.





O land adored


Above all others,


'Tis thee Brazil,


Beloved Fatherland!





Thou art the gentle mother of the children of this soil,





Beloved land,


Brazil!
