The National Anthem of Peru It was composed in 1821 and was originally named the "National March of Peru." Its authors were José la Torre Ugarte and José Bernardo Alcedo, who respectively smaller can learn it and practice it at school.
We're free! Let's always be!
and before the sun denies its lights,
that we miss the solemn vow
that the country to the eternal raised.
Long time the oppressed Peruvian
the ominous chain dragged,
condemned to cruel servitude
long time in silence he groaned.
But just the sacred cry
Liberty! on its shores it was heard,
the indolence of a slave shakes,
the humiliated neck lifted.
Already the roar of hoarse chains
who heard three centuries of horror
of the free, to the sacred cry
that the world heard astonished, ceased.
Everywhere San Martin inflamed,
Liberty! Liberty! pronounced
and rocking its base the Andes,
they also enunciated it with one voice.
With its influence the peoples awaken
and what lightning ran the opinion,
from the Isthmus to the lands of fire,
from the fire to the frozen region.
They all swear to break the link
that Nature denied both worlds,
and break that scepter that Spain
she reclined proudly on both of them.
Lima fulfills its solemn vow,
and severe his anger showed,
the powerful tyrant throwing,
trying to lengthen his oppression.
To his effort the irons jumped
and the grooves that he repaired in himself,
they stoked hatred and revenge
that he inherited from his Inca and lord.
Countrymen, no more seeing her a slave
if humiliated for three centuries she groaned,
forever let us swear free,
maintaining its own splendor.
Our arms until today unarmed,
are always priming the cannon,
that one day the beaches of Iberia,
they will feel terror from its roar.
Let us excite the jealousy of Spain
because it senses with decline and fury,
that in competition of great nations
our homeland will be compared.
In the list that of these is formed
we will fill the line first,
that the ambitious Iberian tyrant,
that the whole America devastated.
At its summit the Andes hold
the bicolor flag or banner,
that to the centuries announces the effort,
that being free forever gave us.
In its shadow we live in peace,
and when the sun rises from its peaks,
let's renew the great oath
that we surrender to the god of Jacob.
