HIMNO NACIONAL MEXICANO





Letra (Lyrics): Francisco González Bocanegra





Mú sica (Music): Jaime Nunó





CORO





Mexicanos, al grito de guerra


El acero aprestad y el bridón;


y retiemble en sus centros la tierra


Al sonoro rugir del cañón.





Ciña �oh patria! tus sienes de oliva


De la Paz el arcángel divino,


Que en el cielo tu eterno destino


Por el dedo de Dios se escribió.


Mas si osare un extraño enemigo


Profanar con su planta tu suelo,


Piensa �oh patria querida! que el cielo


Un soldado en cada hijo te dio.





CORO II





�Guerra, guerra sin tregua al que intente


De la patria manchar los blasones!


�Guerra, guerra! Los patrios pendones


En las olas de sangre empapad.


�Guerra, guerra! En el monte, en el valle


Los cañones horrísonos truenen


Y los ecos sonoros resuenen


Con las voces de �Unión! �Libertad!





CORO III





Antes, patria, que inermes tus hijos


Bajo el yugo su cuello dobleguen,


Tus campiñas con sangre se rieguen,


Sobre sangre se estampe su pie.


Y tus templos, palacios y torres


Se derrumben con hórrido estruendo,


Y sus ruinas existan diciendo:


De mil héroes la patria aquí fue.





CORO IV





Patria! patria! Tus hijos te juran


Exhalar en tus aras su aliento,


Si el clarín con su bélico acento


Los convoca a lidiar con valor.


Para ti las guirnaldas de oliva!


Un recuerdo para ellos de gloria!


�Un laurel para ti de victoria!


Un sepulcro para ellos de honor!





CORO





Mexicanos, al grito de guerra


El acero aprestad y el bridón,


y retiemble en sus centros la tierra


Al sonoro rugir del cañón.

Anthem Lyrics English

CHORUS





Mexicans, at the cry of battle


lend your swords and horse;


and let the earth tremble at its center


upon the roar of the cannon.





Your forehead shall be girded, oh fatherland, with olive garlands


by the divine archangel of peace,


For in heaven your eternal destiny


has been written by the hand of God.


But should a foreign enemy


Profane your land with his sole,


Think, beloved fatherland, that heaven


gave you a soldier in each son.





CHORUS





II





War, war without truce against who would attempt


to blemish the honor of the fatherland!


War, war! The patriotic banners


saturate in waves of blood.


War, war! On the mount, in the vale


The terrifying cannon thunder


and the echoes nobly resound


to the cries of union! liberty!





CHORUS





III





Fatherland, before your children become unarmed


Beneath the yoke their necks in sway,


May your countryside be watered with blood,


On blood their feet trample.


And may your temples, palaces and towers


crumble in horrid crash,


and their ruins exist saying:


The fatherland was made of one thousand heroes here.





CHORUS





IV





Fatherland, fatherland, your children swear


to exhale their breath in your cause,


If the bugle in its belligerent tone


should call upon them to struggle with bravery.


For you the olive garlands!


For them a memory of glory!


For you a laurel of victory!


For them a tomb of honor!
