Anthem Lyrics

Salve a ti



¡Salve a ti, Nicaragua! En tu suelo


ya no ruge la voz del cañón,


ni se tiñe con sangre de hermanos


tu glorioso pendón bicolor.

Brille hermosa la paz en tu cielo,


nada empañe tu gloria inmortal,


¡que el trabajo es tu digno laurel


y el honor es tu enseña triunfal!

Anthem Lyrics English

Hail to thee




Hail to thee, Nicaragua!


the voice of the cannon no longer roars on your soil,


nor does the blood of brothers stain


your glorious bicolor flag.

Peace shines beautiful in your sky,


nothing dims your immortal glory,


¡for work is what earns your laurels


and honor is your triumphal ensign!
