Peru - Himno Nacional del Perú

 

Spanish:

Somos libres
seámoslo siempre, seámoslo siempre
y antes niegue sus luces
sus luces , sus luces el Sol!
Que faltemos al voto solemne
que la patria al Eterno elevó,
Que faltemos al voto solemne
que la patria al Eterno elevó.
Que faltemos al voto soleme
que la patria al Eterno elevo.

Largo tiempo el peruano oprimido
la ominosa cadena arrastró
condenado a una cruel servidumbre
largo tiempo, largo tiempo,
largo tiempo en silencio gimió.
Mas apenas el grito sagrado
¡Libertad! en sus costas se oyó
la indolencia del esclavo sacude
la humillada, la humillada,
la humillada cerviz levantó,
la humillada cerviz levantó, cerviz levantó…

English:

We are free!
May we always be so, may we always be so!
and let before the lights are denied
the lights, the lights…of the sun!
Before allow us to break the solemn vow
for which the fatherland elevated to the Eternal,
Before allow us to break the solemn vow
for which the fatherland elevated to the Eternal.
Before allow us to break the solemn vow
for which the fatherland elevated to the Eternal.

For a long time the oppressed Peruvian
the ominous chain he dragged
Condemned to a cruel servitude
for a long time, for a long time
for a long time he quietly whimpered
But then the sacred shout
Liberty! in its coasts has been heard
the slave’s indolence beats
the humiliated, the humiliated,
the humiliated neck raised up,
the humiliated neck raised up, neck raised up…
