Lyrics by Vicente Salias

Gloria al Bravo Pueblo

Spanish Version

Coro
Gloria al bravo pueblo
que el yugo lanzó,
la Ley respetando
la virtud y honor.

¡Abajo cadenas!
Gritaba el Señor;
y el pobre en su choza
libertad pidió.
A este santo nombre
tembló de pavor
el vil egoísmo
que otra vez triunfó.

Coro

Gritemos con brío
Muera la opresión!
Compatriotas fieles,
la fuerza es la unión;
y desde el empíreo,
el Supremo Autor
un sublime aliento
al pueblo infundió.

Coro

Unida con lazos
que el cielo formó,
la America toda
existe en nación;
y si el despotismo
levanta la voz
seguir el ejemplo
que Caracas dió.

Glory to the Brave People

English Translation (Audio in Spanish)

Chorus
Glory to the brave people
which shook off the yoke,
the Law respecting
virtue and honour.

Down with the chains! (repeat)
Cried out the Lord; (repeat)
and the poor man in his hovel
for freedom implored.
Upon this holy name (repeat)
trembled in fear
the vile selfishness
that had once triumphed.
(repeat last four lines)
(repeat last two lines)

Chorus

Let’s cry out aloud: (repeat)
Down with oppression! (repeat)
Faithful countrymen, your strength
lies in your unity;
and from the heavens ((repeat))
the supreme Creator
breathed a sublime spirit
into the nation.
(repeat last four lines)
(repeat last two lines)

Chorus

United by bonds (repeat)
made by heaven, (repeat)
all America exists
as a Nation;
and if tyranny (repeat)
raises its voice,
follow the example
given by Caracas.
(repeat last four lines)
(repeat last two lines)

Chorus
