Portugal

A PORTUGUESA

Hero'is do mar, nobre povo,
Nac,a~o valente, imortal
Levantai hoje de novo,
O esplendor de Portugal
Entre as brumas da memo'ria,
O' pa'tria sente-se a voz
Dos teus egre'gios avo's
Que ha'-de guiar-te `a vito'ria.

`As armas! `As armas!
Sobre a terra e sobre o mar!
`As armas! `As armas!
Pela Pa'tria lutar!

Contra os canho~es marchar, marchar!

Desfralda a invicta bandeira
`A luz viva do teu ce'u
Brade a Europa `a terra inteira
Portugal na~o pereceu!
Beija o solo teu jucundo
O oceano a rujir d'amor
E o teu brac,o vencedor
Deu mundos novos ao Mundo!

[coro]

Saudai o sol que desponta
Sobre um ridente porvir;
Seja o eco d'uma afronta
O sinal de ressurgir.
Raios d'essa aurora forte
Sa~o como beijos de ma~e
Que nos guardam, nos suste^m,
Contra as inju'rias da sorte.

English:

Heroes of the sea, noble race,

Valiant and immortal nation,

Now is the hour to raise up on high once more

Portugal's splendour.

From out of the mists of memory,

Oh Homeland, we hear the voices

Of your great forefathers

That shall lead you on to victory!


CHORUS

To arms, to arms

On land and sea!

To arms, to arms

To fight for our Homeland!

To march against the enemy guns!


Unfurl the unconquerable flag

In the bright light of your sky!

Cry out to all Europe and the whole world

That Portugal has not perished.

Your happy land is kissed

By the Ocean that murmurs with love.

And your conquering arm

Has given new worlds to the world!


CHORUS


Salute the Sun that rises

On a smiling future:

Let the echo of an insult be

The signal for our revival.

The rays of that powerful dawn

Are like a mother's kisses

That protect us and support us

Against the insults of fate.


CHORUS
