Original Lyrics in Spanish

¡Salve, Oh Patria, mil veces! ¡Oh Patria!
¡Gloria a ti! ¡Gloria a ti!
Ya tu pecho rebosa,
Gozo y paz ya tu pecho rebosa,
Y tu frente, tu frente radiosa
Más que el sol contemplamos lucir.

Los primeros, los hijos del suelo
Que, soberbio, el Pichincha decora,
Te aclamaron por siempre, señora
Y vertieron su sangre por ti.
Dios miró y aceptó el holocausto,
Y esa sangre fue germen fecundo
De otros héroes que, atónitos, el mundo
Vio en tu torno a millares surgir.

We salute you, our homeland, a thousand times!
Glory to you! Glory to you!
Your breast overflows with joy and peace,
And we see your radiant face
Shining brighter than the sun.

The first sons of the soil
That Pichincha adorns with pride,
Hailed you forever, as their lady
And shed their blood for you.
God watched and accepted the sacrifice,
And that blood was the fertile seed
Of other heroes whom the world, amazed,
Saw arise around you by the thousands.
