Original Lyrics in Portuguese

Canta, irmão
Canta, meu irmão
Que a liberdade é hino
E o homem a certeza

Com dignidade, enterra a semente
No pó da ilha nua
No despenhadeiro da vida
A esperança é do tamanho do mar
Que nos abraça
Sentinela de mares e ventos
Perseverante entre estrelas
E do Atlântico entoa o cântico da liberdade

Sing, brother
Sing, my brother
For freedom is a hymn
And man a certainty

With dignity, bury the seed
In the dust of the bare island
On the cliff of life
Hope is as large as the sea
That embraces us
Sentinel of the seas and winds
Persistent among the stars
And from the Atlantic intones
The chant of freedom
