CHORUS

We are light and hope in the Homeland
of unparalleled beauty and richness,
our islands are kingdoms of the world
sovereign of the sky and sea.

VERSE
I

In the distant mists of time
YOUR story looms,
with other brave weave
Fray Tomas de Berlanga at par.

II

Of those men invincible arm,
where the sun shines resplendent,
for the world forged an epic
and the country donated a treasure.

III

Our islands blue fantasy
poets and wise more,
Gentile tourist attraction,
and the world, tesoro ideal.

IV

San Cristóbal, ignored wealth,
Isabela, of great future;
Santa Cruz, fertile and active
y Floreana, la bella the Gentil.
