Mexican National Anthem Lyrics in Spanish

Chorus:
Mexicanos, al grito de guerra
el acero aprestad y el bridón
y retiemble en sus centros la tierra
al sonoro rugir del cañón.

1. Ciña ¡oh Patria! tus sienes de oliva
de la paz el arcángel divino
que en el cielo tu eterno destino
por el dedo de Dios se escribió.

Mas si osare un extraño enemigo
profanar con su planta tu suelo
piensa ¡oh Patria querida! que el cielo
un soldado en cada hijo te dio.

Chorus

5. ¡Guerra, guerra sin tregua al que intente
de la patria manchar los blasones!
¡Guerra, guerra! los patrios pendones
en las olas de sangre empapad.

¡Guerra, guerra! en el monte, en el valle
los cañones horrísonos truenen,
y los ecos sonoros resuenen
con las voces de ¡Unión! ¡Libertad!

Chorus

6. Antes, patria, que inermes tus hijos
bajo el yugo su cuello dobleguen,
tus campiñas con sangre se rieguen,
sobre sangre se estampe su pie.

Y tus templos, palacios y torres
se derrumben con hórrido estruendo
y sus ruinas existan diciendo:
de mil héroes la patria aquí fue.

Chorus

10. ¡Patria! ¡Patria! tus hijos te juran
exhalar en tus aras su aliento
sí el clarín con su bélico acento
los convoca a lidiar con valor.

¡Para ti las guirnaldas de oliva!
¡Un recuerdo para ellos de gloria!
¡Un laurel para ti de victoria!
¡Un sepulcro para ellos de honor!

Chorus

Mexican National Anthem Lyrics Meaning in English

Chorus:
Mexicans, at the cry of war,
Grasp the steel and the bridle,
And let the earth’s core tremble
To the roar of the cannon.

1. O Homeland! may your brow be wreathed with the olive
By the divine archangel of Peace
For in heaven, your eternal destiny
Has been written by the finger of God.

But if a foreign enemy should dare
To profane your ground with his step,
Think, o beloved Homeland! that heaven
Gave you a soldier in each son.

Chorus

5. War, war without truce upon him who means
To sully the blazon of the Homeland;
War, war! Soak our homeland’s flags
In the waves of blood.

War, war! In the mountains and the valley,
The dreadful cannons thunder,
And the deafening echoes resound
The cries of Union! Liberty!

Chorus

6. O Homeland, before your unarmed sons
Bend their necks under the yoke,
Your countrysides will be watered with blood
And in blood will be their footprints.

And your temples, palaces, and towers
Will fall with terrible thunder,
And their ruins shall live to say,
“This was the fatherland of a thousand heroes.”

Chorus

10. Homeland, Homeland! Your sons swear
To breathe out their breath on your altars,
If the clarion with its warlike tone
Calls them to struggle with valour.

For you the garlands of olive!
For them a memory of glory!
For you a laurel of victory!
For them a tomb of honour!

Chorus
