Que los ecos se agitenMientras llenos de noble ansiedadNuestros campos de gloria repiten?Libertad! ?Libertad! ?Libertad!Translation:Brave Quisqueyans,Let's raise our song with vivid emotion,From the world to the face of the earthShow our unconquered glorious banner.Hail, the nation who strong and intrepid,Into war launched itself set to dieWhen war threatened with deathIts chains of slavery still it cut off.No nation deserves to have freedomIf it's a slave, apathetic, or servile;If in its chest the flame stirredBy man's heroism doesn't grow.But Quisqueya the brave and indomitableAlways proudly her forehead will raise:For if she were a thousand times a slaveThis many times to be free she will know.And if fraud and cunning exposed herTo disdain of an intrusive man,Las Carreras! Beler!...were fieldsWhich covered in glory were seen.At the top of our heroic bastion,Word of the free was materialized,Where the genius of Sanchez and DuarteTaught us to be free or to die.And if could inconsiderate leaderReduce the luster of these glories,Of the war seen in CapotilloThe banner of fire waves on.And the fire that leaves shockedThe arrogant lion from Castile,Removes it from glorious beaches toWhere floats the banner that's crossed.Compatriots, let's show erect ourForehead, proud of today for;Quisqueya will be destroyedBut slave again, never.That she is a sanctuary of loveLives in every chest of the country;It is her invincible shield, the law;It is her motto: Be free or die.Liberty that still serenely lifts upVictory in her triumphal carriage.The trumpet of war still resoundsProclaiming her immortal gloryLiberty! Let the echoes agitateWhile full of noble anxietyOur battlefields of glory repeatLiberty! Liberty! Liberty!
