Paraguay National Anthem for Students

The “Paraguayan National Anthem” (Spanish: Himno Nacional Paraguayo) is the national anthem of Paraguay. The lyrics were written by Francisco Acuña de Figueroa (who also wrote Orientales, la Patria o la tumba, the national anthem of Uruguay) under the presidency of Carlos Antonio López, who at the time delegated Bernardo Jovellanos and Anastasio González to ask Figueroa to write the anthem (Jovellanos and González were commissioners of the Paraguayan government in Uruguay).

Paraguay National Anthem in Spanish:

A los pueblos de América infausto,

Tres centurias un cetro oprimió,

Más un día soberbia surgiendo,

Basta!…, dijo y el cetro rompió.

Nuestros padres lidiando grandiosos,

Ilustraron su gloria marcial;

Y trozada la augusta diadema,

Ensalzaron el gorro triunfal!

(repeat previous two lines)


Paraguayos, República o muerte!

Nuestro brío nos dió libertad;

Ni opresores, ni siervos, alientan,

Donde reinan unión, e igualdad.

(repeat previous two lines)

Unión, e igualdad.


Paraguay National Anthem in English:

For three centuries a reign oppressed

The unhappy peoples of America,

But one day, their anger aroused, they said:

“An end to this!” and broke the reign.

Our forefathers, fighting magnificently,

Displayed their immortal glory,

And when the august diadem was shattered,

They raised the triumphal cap of liberty.

(repeat previous two lines)


Paraguayans, Republic or death!

It was our strength that gave us our final liberty.

Neither tyrants nor slaves can continue,

Where unity and equality reign,

(repeat previous two lines)

Where unity and equality reign.
