For the faith put forth your might!

The law divine to all hearts unite! (repeat)

Lead us onward, holy banner!
Guide us ever, immortal faith!
Ev'ry man will follow proudly
On the way to victory or death, (repeat)

'In 1910 Portugal became a republic. It is therefore doubtful whether the original Portuguese words are still sung.

While on freedom's soil rings our song.
Chorus

Let us strive till life is o'er,
Faith in freedom our inspiration,
Freedom now and evermore!
