National anthem of Costa Rica

The lyrics of the National Anthem of Costa Rica

Noble patria, tu hermosa bandera

¡Noble patria!, tu hermosa bandera
expresión de tu vida nos da;
bajo el límpido azul de tu cielo
blanca y pura descansa la paz.

En la lucha tenaz, de fecunda labor,
que enrojece del hombre la faz;
conquistaron tus hijos, labriegos sencillos,
eterno prestigio, estima y honor,
eterno prestigio, estima y honor.

¡Salve, oh tierra gentil!
¡Salve, oh madre de amor!
Cuando alguno pretenda tu gloria manchar,
verás a tu pueblo, valiente y viril,
la tosca herramienta en arma trocar.

¡Salve, oh patria!, tu pródigo suelo
dulce abrigo y sustento nos da;
bajo el límpido azul de tu cielo,
¡vivan siempre el trabajo y la paz!

Noble fatherland, your beautiful flag

Noble homeland, your beautiful flag
expression of your life gives us;
under the clear blue of your sky
pure white rest peace.

In the tenacious struggle, of fruitful labor,
that reddens the man’s face;
conquered your children, simple farmers,
eternal prestige, esteem and honor,
eternal prestige, esteem and honor.

Hail, O gentle land!
Hail, O mother of love!
When any man shall seek to stain thy glory,
you will see your people, brave and virile,
the crude tool in trocar weapon.

Hail, O homeland, thy bountiful soil
sweet coat and sustenance it gives us;
under the clear blue of your sky
work and peace always live!
