Original[edit]

Al combate corred bayameses
Que la patria os comtempla orgullosa
No temaís una muerte gloriosa
Que morir por la patria es vivir

En cadenas vivir es vivir
En afrenta y oprobio sumidos
Del clarín escuchad el sonido
A las armas valientes corred.

Translation[edit]

Hasten to battle, men of Bayamo,
For the fatherland looks proudly to you.
Fear not a glorious death,
To die for the fatherland is to live.

To live in chains is to live
In combined dishonour and ignominy.
From the clarion hear the call,
To arms, brave ones, hasten!
