Original Lyrics in Spanish

Saludemos la patria orgullosos
De hijos suyos podernos llamar;
Y juremos la vida animosos
Sin descanso a su bien consagrar.

De la paz en la dicha suprema,
Siempre noble soñó El Salvador;
Fue obtenerla su eterno problema,
Conservarla es su gloria mayor.

Y con fe inquebrantable el camino
Del progreso se afana en seguir
Por llenar su grandioso destino
Conquistarse un feliz porvenir.

Le protege una férrea barrera
Contra el choque de ruin deslealtad,
Desde el día que en su alta bandera
Con su sangre escribió: ¡LIBERTAD!

Let us salute the fatherland proudly
Of being able to call ourselves her children;
And let us vow our lives eagerly
To her welfare without rest.

Of peace in supreme bliss,
El Salvador always nobly dreamed;
To obtain it was her eternal dilemma,
To preserve it is her greatest glory.

And with unbreakable faith, the path
Of progress strives to follow
To fulfill her grand destiny
To achieve a happy future.

She is protected by a sturdy barrier
Against the clash of vile disloyalty,
Since the day when in her high banner
With her blood she wrote: FREEDOM!
