English Translation of National Song:
Let us salute, the Motherland,
proud to be called its children,
And let us spiritedly swear our lives
to consecrate it’s good without rest! (2x,).
Of peace and in supreme happiness
El Salvador always nobly dreamed of.
To achieve this has been Her eternal proposition,
To keep it, Her greatest glory.
And with unwavering faith, the path of progress
She strives to follow, to follow
To fulfil Her greatest destiny
And conquer a happy future.
A stern barrier protects Her
Against the clash of vile disloyalty,
Ever since the day when Her soaring Flag,
Wrote “Freedom” with Its blood.
Wrote Freedom. (3x)
