Republic Proclamation Anthem Lyrics

Be a canopy of unfolded light,
Under the wide breadth of these skies
This rebel chant that the past
It comes from the most foul labors.
Be a hymn of glory that speaks,
Of hope for a new future,
With visions of triumphs pack
Who for him struggling to arise.
Freedom! Freedom!
Spread your wings over us
From the fights in the storm
Give us to hear your voice.
We don't even believe that slaves once
There has been in such a noble country
Today the red flash of dawn,
You find brothers, not hostile tyrants.
We are all equal, to the future
We will know how to lead,
Our august banner, how pure,
It shines from the Fatherland on the altar.
Freedom! Freedom!
Spread your wings over us
From the fights in the storm
Give us to hear your voice.
If it is necessary that of brave breasts,
Let there be blood on our banner,
Hero Tiradentes Living Blood,
He named this daring pavilion.
Messenger of peace, peace we want,
It is of love our strength and power
But of war in the supreme trances,
You will see us fight and win.
Freedom! Freedom!
Spread your wings over us
From the fights in the storm
Give us to hear your voice.
From Ipiranga it is necessary that the cry,
Be a superb cry of faith,
Brazil has already emerged liberated,
On the royal purple feet.
So, Brazilians, go on!
Green blondes reap praise,
Be our triumphant country,
Free land of free brothers!
Freedom! Freedom!
Spread your wings over us
From the fights in the storm
Give us to hear your voice.
