Anthem Lyrics

Guatemala Feliz





¡Guatemala feliz! que tus aras


No profane jamás el verdugo;


Ni haya esclavos que laman el yugo


Ni tiranos que escupan tu faz.


Si mañana tu suelo sagrado


Lo amenaza invasión extranjera,


Libre al viento tu hermosa bandera


A vencer o a morir llamará.





Libre al viento tu hermosa bandera


A vencer o a morir llamará;


Que tu pueblo con ánima fiera


Antes meurto q'esclavo será.

Anthem Lyrics English

Guatemala Feliz





Fortunate Guatemala!  May your altars


Never be profaned by cruel men.


May there never be slaves who submit to their yoke,


Or tyrants who deride you.


If tomorrow your sacred soil


Should be threatened by foreign invasion,


Your fair flag, flying freely in the wind,


Will call to you:  Conquer or die.





Your fair flag, flying freely in the wind,


Will call to you:  Conquer or die.


For your people, with heart and soul,


Would prefer death to slavery.
