¡Feliz Día de la Independencia! Happy Independence Day! With everything going on in Guatemala, this is an exciting year. In honor of independence since 1821, here are the first and two final stanzas of the himno nacional. As many of you probably know, there are many verses in-between!
¡Guatemala feliz…! que tus aras no profane jamás el verdugo; ni haya esclavos que laman el yugo ni tiranos que escupan tu faz.
Ave Indiana que vive en tu escudo,
paladión que protege tu suelo;
¡ojalá que remonte su vuelo,
más que el cóndor y el águila real!
¡Ojalá que remonte su vuelo, más que el cóndor y el águila real! y en sus alas levante hasta el cielo, GUATEMALA, tu nombre inmortal!
