Al combate, corred, bayameses,
Que la patria os contempla orgullosa;
No temáis una muerte gloriosa,
Que morir por la patria es vivir.

En cadenas vivir es vivir
En afrenta y oprobio sumidos.
Del clarín escuchad el sonido;
¡A las armas, valientes, corred!

To the battle, run, Bayamese,
That the homeland looks proudly upon you;
Do not fear a glorious death,
Because to die for the homeland is to live.

Living in chains is to live
In dishonor and ignominy.
Hear the sound of the bugle;
To arms, brave ones, run!
