Brazilian National Anthem
Poem by Joaquim Osório Duque Estrada
Music by Francisco Manoel da Silva

Part I
They heard from Ipiranga the placid margins
of a heroic people the resounding cry,
and the sun of liberty in blazing rays,
it shone in the sky of the country at that moment.
If the pledge of such equality
we managed to conquer with a strong arm,
in your bosom, O freedom,
defies our chest to death itself!
O beloved country, idolized, save! Save!
Brazil, an intense dream, a vivid lightning
of love and hope to the earth come down,
if in your beautiful sky, laughing and clear,
The image of the cruise shines.
Giant by nature,
you are beautiful, you are strong, undaunted colossus,
and your future mirrors that greatness.
Worshiped land, among a thousand others,
it is you, Brazil, beloved homeland!
Of the children of this soil you are a kind mother,
beloved homeland, Brazil!

Part II
Lying eternally in splendid cradle,
to the sound of the sea and the light of the deep sky,
fulguras, O Brazil, finial of America,
sunlit in the new world!
Than the earth, bolder,
your laughing beautiful fields have more flowers;
Our woods have more life,
Our life in your bosom more loves.
O beloved country, idolized, save! Save!
Brazil, of eternal love be symbol
the barbarian sporting starry,
and say the bay green of that streamer
- peace in the future and glory in the past.
But if you lift up the strong club,
you will see that a son of yours does not escape the fight,
neither fear, who worships you, death itself.
Worshiped land, among a thousand others,
it is you, Brazil, beloved homeland!
Of the children of this soil you are a kind mother,
beloved homeland, Brazil!
