National Anthem

English:
For three centuries a reign oppressed

The unhappy peoples of America,
But one day, their anger aroused, they said:
"An end to this!" and broke the reign.
Our forefathers, fighting magnificently,
Displayed their immortal glory,
And when the august diadem was shattered,
They raised the triumphal cap of liberty.
(repeat previous two lines)
CHORUS
Paraguayans, Republic or death!
It was our strength that gave us our final liberty.
Neither tyrants nor slaves can continue,
Where unity and equality reign,
(repeat previous two lines)
Where unity and equality reign.
(repeat)
