Brazil Native Anthem Text Hino Nacional/National Anthem
The Brazilian National Anthem is sufficient grounds for the fame of it's composer,
Francisco Manuel. Through it's admirably
Warm and spirited melody, it took it's place as the national anthem before it was accorded
Any official recognition. Various
Changes made to it have not distorted it's essence, though they have softened it's martial
Tone. Originally composed in a purely
Orchestral version for military band, it has been the various texts which have been set to it,
Especially that of Osório Duque
Estrada in 1922, which have somewhat spoilt it.
The history of the anthem is the subject of controversy. In the view of some, it was
Composed for Brazilian Independence,others
Believe it was written for the 7th of April and performed on the 13th to a text attributed to
Ovídio Saraiva de Carvalho e Silva,
In which there are references to "a wise reign" and "a Brazilian monarch", the 7th of April
Being taken as the dawn of Brazilian
Liberty. A third view is that of Souza Pitanga and Ernesto Sena, supported by Alberto
Nepomuceno who writes: "In the same
Year (1841), at perhaps the height of his career, Francisco Manuel composed the anthem
To celebrate the coronation of the
Second Emperor of Brazil, showing himself to be a composer of great merit in this inspired
Work, which still animates the
National soul today.
Decree No.15671 of the 6th of September 1922 officially adopted the words of Osório
Duque Estrada, written in 1909, the
First version of it. Law No. 259 of the 1st of October 1936 prescribed the version of
Leopoldo Miguez for orchestral
Performance, and the version by Lt. Antonio Pinto Junior of the Federal District Fire
Brigades, for military band, in the original
Key of B Flat; and finally a version in F by Alberto Nepomuceno for singing:
Music: Francisco Manuel da Silva (1795-1865)
Verses: Joaquim Osório Duque Estrada (1870-1927)
I
Ouviram do Ipiranga às margens plácidas
De um povo heróico o brado retumbante,
E o sol da liberdade, em raios fúlgidos,
Brilhou no céu da Pátria nesse instante.
Se o penhor dessa igualdade
Conseguimos conquistar com braço forte,
Em teu seio ó liberdade,
Desafia o nosso peito a própria morte!
Ó Pátria amada
Idolatrada
Salve! Salve!
Brasil de um sonho intenso, um raio vívido,
De amor e de esperança à terra desce
Se em teu formoso céu risonho e límpido
A imagem do Cruzeiro resplandece
Gigante pela própria natureza
És belo, és forte, impávido colosso,
E o teu futuro espelha essa grandeza,
Terra adorada!
Entre outras mil
És tu, Brasil,
Ó Pátria amada
Dos filhos deste solo és mãe gentil,
Pátria amada
Brasil!
II
Deitado eternamente em berço esplêndido,
Ao som do mar e à luz do céu profundo,
Fulguras, ó Brasil, florão da América,
Iluminado ao sol do Novo Mundo!
Do que a terra mais garrida
Teus risonhos lindos campos tem mais flores,
"Nossos bosques tem mais vida"
"Nossa vida" no teu seio "mais amores"
Ó Pátria amada
Idolatrada
Salve! Salve!
Brasil, de amor eterno seja símbolo
O lábaro que ostentas estrelado,
E diga o verde-louro dessa flâmula
- paz no futuro e glória no passado -
Mas se ergues da justiça a clava forte,
Verás que um filho teu não foge à luta,
Nem teme, quem te adora, a própria morte,
Terra adorada!
Entre outras mil
És tu, Brasil,
Ó Pátria amada
Dos filhos deste solo és mãe gentil
Pátria amada
Brasil!
