Bolivianos, El Hado Propicio

Bolivianos el hado propicio
coronó nuestros votos y anhelo
es ya libre, ya libre este suelo
ya cesó su servil condición.
Al estruendo marcial que ayer fuera
y al clamor de la guerra horroroso
siguen hoy, en contraste armonioso,
dulces himnos de paz y de unión.
siguen hoy, en contraste armonioso,
dulces himnos de paz y de unión.

De la patria el alto nombre
en glorioso esplendor conservemos
y en sus aras de nuevo juremos
¡Morir antes que esclavos vivir!
¡Morir antes que esclavos vivir!
¡Morir antes que esclavos vivir!

Loor eterno a los bravos guerreros,
cuyo heróico valor y firmeza :
conquistaron las glorias que empiezan
hoy Bolivia feliz a gozar.
Que sus nombres el mármol y el bronce,
a remotas edades trasmitan,
y en sonoros cantares repitan:
¡Libertad, libertad, libertad!
y en sonoros cantares repitan:
¡Libertad, libertad, libertad!

De la patria el alto nombre
en glorioso esplendor conservemos
y en sus aras de nuevo juremos
¡Morir antes que esclavos vivir!
¡Morir antes que esclavos vivir!
¡Morir antes que esclavos vivir!

Aquí alzó la justicia su trono
que la vil opresión desconoce
y en su timbre glorioso legose
¡libertad, libertad, libertad!
Esta tierra inocente y hermosa
que ha debido a Bolívar su nombre
es la patria feliz donde el hombre
goza el bien de la dicha y la paz.
es la patria feliz donde el hombre
goza el bien de la dicha y la paz.

De la patria el alto nombre
en glorioso esplendor conservemos
y en sus aras de nuevo juremos
¡Morir antes que esclavos vivir!
¡Morir antes que esclavos vivir!
¡Morir antes que esclavos vivir!

Si extranjero poder alqún día
sojuzgar a Bolivia intentare
al destino fatal se prepare
que amenaza a soberbio agresor.
Que los hijos del grande Bolívar
han ya mil y mil veces jurado
morir antes que ver humillado
de la patria el augusto pendón.
morir antes que ver humillado
de la patria el augusto pendón.

Bolivians, a most Favorable Destiny

Bolivians, a most favorable destiny
has at long last crowned our vows and longings;
This land is free, free at last.
Its servile state has now finally ceased.
The martial turmoil of yesterday,
and the horrible clamor of war,
are followed today, in harmonious contrast,
by sweet hymns of peace and unity.
Are followed today, in harmonious contrast,
by sweet hymns of peace and unity.

Let us keep the lofty name of our Fatherland
in glorious splendor conserved.
And, on its altars, once more we must swear:
to die before we would live as slaves!
To die before we would live as slaves!
To die before we would live as slaves!

Eternal praise to the brave warriors
whose heroic valor and firmness
conquered the freedom and glories that now
a happy Bolivia justly begins to enjoy!
Let their names, preserved forever in marble and bronze,
transmit their glory to remote future ages.
And in resounding song let them repeat their simple call:
Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!
And in resounding song let them repeat their simple call:
Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!

Let us keep the lofty name of our Fatherland
in glorious splendor conserved.
And, on its altars, once more we must swear:
to die before we would live as slaves!
To die before we would live as slaves!
To die before we would live as slaves!

Here has Justice erected its Throne
which vile oppression ignores
and, on its glorious stamp let us rejoice
Freedom, freedom, freedom
This innocent and beautiful land,
which owes its name to Bolívar,
is the happy homeland where mankind
enjoys the benefits of good fortune and peace.
Is the happy homeland where mankind
enjoys the benefits of good fortune and peace.

Let us keep the lofty name of our Fatherland
in glorious splendor conserved.
And, on its altars, once more we must swear:
to die before we would live as slaves!
To die before we would live as slaves!
To die before we would live as slaves!

If a foreigner may, any given day
even attempt to subjugate Bolivia,
let him prepare for a fatal destiny,
which menaces such brave aggressor.
For the sons of the mighty Bolívar
have sworn, thousands upon thousands of times:
to die rather than see the country's
majestic banner humiliated.
To die rather than see the country's
majestic banner humiliated.
