Anthem Lyrics

Noble patria tu hermosa bandera

expresión de tu vida nos da

bajo el límpido azul de tu cielo

blanca y pura descansa la paz

En la lucha tenaz, de fecunda labor

que enrojece del hombre la faz

conquistaron tus hijos labriegos, sencillos

eterno prestigio, estima y honor

eterno prestigio, estima y honor

Salve oh tierra gentil

Salve oh madre de amor

Cuando alguno pretenda

tu gloria manchar

verás a tu pueblo valiente y viril

la tosca herramienta en arma trocar

Noble patria tu pródigo suelo

dulce abrigo y sustento nos da

bajo el límpido azul de tu cielo

vivan siempre el trabajo y la paz
