¡Oid mortales! el grito sagrado:

¡Libertad, Libertad, Libertad!

Las provincias unidas del Sud!

Mortals! Hear the sacred cry;

Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!

See noble Equality enthroned.

The United Provinces of the South

Have now displayed their worthy throne.

And the free peoples of the world reply;

We salute the great people of Argentina!

We salute the great people of Argentina!

That we knew how to win.

Let us live crowned with glory,

Or swear to die gloriously.
