Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Heroes, pugnate viri fortissimi, ad arma accelerate manus,
hostem de finibus istis propulsate.
Tonant bombardae, tympana clangunt.
Inimicus adest, hostis adest, armis opus est.
Concurrite in hostes, hastis nos,
gladiis nos sternite,
tum trucidate multiplici sclopeta globo fit victor in hoste.
Sit inimicis de victis victoria nobis cedet,
honor cum praeda, gloria, fama, triumphus.

English.png English translation

Heroes, fight, you valiant men, haste to your weapons,
repulse the enemy from this territory.
Let the trumpets sound, the cymbals resound.
There is the enemy, the wicked: all to war.
Gather against the foe, be quick.
Draw your swords
slaughter them with volleys from your rifles, be victorious against the enemy
and if he grants us this victory over him,
ours will be the honour, pride, glory, fame and triumph.
