Portuguese Lyrics

;1:Seja um pálio de luz desdobrado,
Sob a larga amplidão destes céus.
Este canto rebel, que o passado
Vem remir dos mais torpes labéus!

Seja um hino de glória que fale
De esperanças de um novo porvir!
Com visões de triunfos embale
Quem por ele lutando surgir!;Chorus:Liberdade! Liberdade!
Abre as asas sobre nós,
Das lutas na tempestade
Dá que ouçamos tua voz;2:Nós nem cremos que escravos outrora
Tenha havido em tão nobre País...
Hoje o rubro lampejo da aurora
Acha irmãos, não tiranos hostis.

Somos todos iguais! Ao futuro
Saberemos, unidos, levar
Nosso augusto estandarte que, puro,
Brilha, ovante, da Pátria no altar !;3:Se é mister que de peitos valentes
Haja sangue em nosso pendão,
Sangue vivo do herói Tiradentes
Batizou neste audaz pavilhão!

Mensageiro de paz, paz queremos,
É de amor nossa força e poder,
Mas da guerra, nos transes supremos
Heis de ver-nos lutar e vencer!;4:Do Ipiranga é preciso que o brado
Seja um grito soberbo de fé!
O Brasil já surgiu libertado,
Sobre as púrpuras régias de pé.

Eia, pois, brasileiros avante!
Verdes louros colhamos louçãos!
Seja o nosso País triunfante,
Livre terra de livres irmãos!
(Chorus)
