Thousands of true and brave,
Their hero lives may end, O'er thousands that flag" shall wave,
Thousands its folds defend.
Chorus.
No wrong-s our breasts alarm,
No fears our hearts appal, Unswerving' justice nerves our arm,
We Cannot conquered fall. Think on our noble sires,
Immortal in renown, Think on our altar-fires,
And strike the oppressor down!
Chorus.
With threats of horror dire,
The fierce invader comes; We scorn his boasts, we scorn his ire,
Striking for hearths and homes. Strike for our mothers now,
For daughters, sisters, wives, Truly would each bestow,
Were it ten thousand lives.
Chorus.
