Coro: Oh gloria inmarcesible ! Oh J?bilo inmortal ! En surcos de dolores El bien germina ya ! Ces? la horrible noche ! la libertad sublime derrama las auroras de su invencible luz. La humanidad entera, que entre cadenas gime, comprende las palabras del que muri? en la cruz. Independencia grita el mundo americano; se ba?a en sangre de h?roes la tierra de Col?n. Pero este gran principio: el Rey no es soberano, resuena, y los que sufren bendicen su pasi?n. Del Orinoco el cauce se colma de despojos; de sangre y llanto un r?o se mira all? correr. En B?rbula no saben las almas ni los ojos, si admiraci?n o espanto sentir o padecer. A orillas del caribe hambriento un pueblo lucha, Horrores prefiriendo a p?rfida salud. Oh, s? de Cartagena la abnegaci?n es mucha, y escombros de la muerte desprecia su virtud. De Boyac? en los campos el genio de la gloria con cada espiga un h?roe invicto coron?. Soldados sin coraza ganaron la victoria; su varonil aliento de escudo les sirvi?. Bolivar cruza el Ande que riega dos oc?anos; espadas cual centellas fulguran en jun?n. Centauros indomables descienden a los llanos, y empieza a presentirse de la epopeya el fin. La trompa victoriosa en Ayacucho truena; y en cada triunfo crece su formidable son. En su expansivo empuje la libertad se estrena, del cielo americano formando un pabell?n. La virgen sus cabellos arranca en agon?a y de su amor viuda los cuelga del cipr?s. Lamenta su esperanza que cubre loza fr?a, pero glorioso orgullo circunda su alba tez. La patria as? se forma term?pilas brotando; constelaci?n de c?clopes su noche ilumin?. La flor estremecida, mortal el viento hallando, debajo los laureles seguridad busc?. Mas no es completa gloria vencer en la batalla, que el brazo que combate lo anima la verdad. La independencia sola al gran clamor no acalla; si el sol alumbra a todos, justicia es libertad. Del hombre los derechos Nari?o predicando, el alma de la lucha prof?tico ense??. Ricaurte en San Mateo en ?tomos volando, deber antes que vida con llamas escribi?.

Choir: Oh inmarcesible glory! Oh inmortal Joy! In furrows of pains the good germinates already! The horrible night stopped! the sublime freedom spills the auroras of its invincible light. The whole humanity, that between chains moans, includes/understands the words of which died in the cross. Independence shouts the American world; one bathes in blood of Earth heroes of Columbus. But this great principle: the King is not sovereign, he resonates, and those that suffer bless their passion. With the Orinoco the channel is overwhelmed with despoliation; there of blood and weeping a river is watched to run. In B?rbula to the souls nor the eyes do not know, if admiration or fright to feel or to suffer. To borders of the hungry Caribbean a town fights, Horrors preferring to p?rfida health. Oh, yes of Cartagena the self-denial is much, and rubbish of the death despises their virtue. Of Boyac? in the fields the genius of the glory with each ear a hero invicto crowned. Soldiers without armor gained the victory; its manly breath of shield served to them. Bolivar crosses Ande that waters the two oceans; swords as flashes fulguran in jun?n. Indomitable centaurs descend to the level ones, and begins to have a feeling of the epic the aim. The victorious tube in Ayacucho roars; and in each triumph formidable one grows its are. In his expansive one it pushes the freedom is released, of the American sky stacking a arms. The virgin her hair starts in agony and of his love widow she hangs them of the cypress. It laments his hope that covers cold stoneware, but glorious pride surrounds its white complexion. The mother country therefore forms term?pilas appearing; constellation of cyclops its night illuminated. The shaken flower, mortal the wind finding, underneath the laurels security looked for. But it is not complete glory to win in the battle, that the arm that fights animates the truth. Single independence to the great outcry does not silence; if the sun illuminates to all, justice is freedom. Of the man the Nari?o rights preaching, the soul of the prophetic fight taught. Ricaurte in atom San Mateo flying, to have before life with flames wrote.

Since I don't know a lot of anthems other than USA's and Canada's...I'll just stick with the best version of our national anthem I've heard in person which was this little girl at a Heat game a few years back, she tore it up...everyone was in awe.

 

The worst I've ever heard by far was Christina Aguilera at the NBA All-Star game...I wanted to shoot her, she dragged it out and repeated the lines which totally ruined the original song.

:wub: It brought tears to my eyes... Oh if only we could have lived to our patriots expectations... :(

 

Anyway, yes it is the most beautiful Anthem in the world. It was voted the most beautiful anthem after "La Marsellesa" which is the French Anthem.

 

Post Data:

Here is France's National Anthem

LA MARSEILLAISE

 

I

 

Allons enfants de la Patrie,

Le jour de gloire est arriv?.

Contre nous de la tyranie,

L'?tendard sanglant est lev? (bis)

Entendez vous dans les campagnes

mugir ces f?roces soldats

Ils viennent jusque dans vos bras,

?gorger vos fils, vos compagnes

Aux armes citoyens!

Formez vos bataillons!

Marchons, marchons,

qu'un sang impur abreuve nos sillons.

 

II

 

Que veut cette horde d'esclaves

De tra?tres, de Roi conjur?s?

Pour qui ces ignobles entraves,

Ces fers d?s longtemps pr?par?s? (bis)

Fran?ais! pour nous, ah! quel outrage!

Quels transports il doit exciter!

C'est nous qu'on ose m?diter

De rendre ? l'antique esclavage!

 

III

 

Quoi! des cohortes ?trang?res

Feraient la loi dans nos foyers!

Quoi! ces phalanges mercenaires

Terrasseraient nos fiers guerriers! (bis)

Grans Dieu! par des mains encha?n?es

Nos fronts sous le joug se ploieraient

De vils despotes deviendraient

Les ma?tres de nos destin?es!

 

IV

 

Tremblez, tyrans! et vous, perfides,

L'opprobe de tous les partis,

Tremblez! vos projets parricides

Vont enfin recevoir leur prix (bis)

Tout est soldat pour vous combattre,

S'ils tombent, nos jeunes h?ros,

La terre en produit de nouveaux

Contre vous tout pr?ts ? se battre

 

V

 

Fran?ais! en guerriers magnanimes

Portez ou retenez vos coups.

Epargnez ces tristes victimes

A regret s'armant contre nous. (bis)

Mais le despote sanguinaire,

Mais les complices de Bouill?,

Tous ces tigres qui sans piti?

D?chirent le sein de leus m?re.

 

VI

 

Nous entrerons dans la carri?re,

Quand nos a?n?s n'y seront plus

Nous y trouverons leur poussi?re

Et les traces de leurs vertus. (bis)

Bien moins jaloux de leur survivre

Que de partager leur cercueil,

Nous aurons le sublime orgueil

De les venger ou de les suivre.

 

VII

 

Amour Sacr? de la Patrie

Conduis, soutiens nos bras vengeurs!

Libert?, Libert? ch?rie!

Combats avec tes d?fenseurs! (bis)

Sous nos drapeaux, que la victoire

Accoure ? tes m?les accents!

Que tes ennemis expirant

Voient ton triomphe et notre gloire.

 

 

 

TRANSLATION

 

 

 

Arise children of the fatherland

The day of glory has arrived

Against us tyranny's

Bloody standard is raised

Listen to the sound in the fields

The howling of these fearsome soldiers

They are coming into our midst

To cut the throats of your sons and consorts

To arms citizens

Form you battalions

March, march

Let impure blood

Water our furrows

 

What do they want this horde of slaves

Of traitors and conspiratorial kings?

For whom these vile chains

These long-prepared irons?

Frenchmen, for us, ah! What outrage

What methods must be taken?

It is we they dare plan

To return to the old slavery!

 

What! These foreign cohorts!

They would make laws in our courts!

What! These mercenary phalanxes

Would cut down our warrior sons

Good Lord! By chained hands

Our brow would yield under the yoke

The vile despots would have themselves be

The masters of destiny

 

Tremble, tyrants and traitors

The shame of all good men

Tremble! Your parricidal schemes

Will receive their just reward

Against you we are all soldiers

If they fall, our young heros

France will bear new ones

Ready to join the fight against you

 

Frenchmen, as magnanimous warriors

Bear or hold back your blows

Spare these sad victims

Who with regret are taking up arms against us

But not these bloody despots

These accomplices of Bouill?

All these tigers who pitilessly

Are ripping open their mothers' breasts

 

We shall enter into the pit

When our elders will no longer be there

There we shall find their ashes

And the mark of their virtues

We are much less jealous of surviving them

Than of sharing their coffins

We shall have the sublime pride

Of avenging or joining them

 

Sacred Love for the Fatherland

Lead and support our avenging arms

Liberty, cherished liberty

Join the struggle with your defenders

Under our flags, let victory

hasten to you virile (or manly) force

So that in death your enemies

See your triumph and our glory!
