5th A students performing the Brazilian National Anthem

We found the lyrics in English on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brazilian_National_Anthem

The placid banks of the Ipiranga heard
The resounding cry of a heroic folk
And the sun of Liberty in shining beams
Shone in the homeland's sky at that instant.

If the pledge of this equality
We managed to conquer with strong arm,
In thy bosom, O Freedom,
Our chest defies death itself!

O beloved,
Idolized homeland,
Hail, hail!

Brazil, an intense dream, a vivid ray
Of love and hope descends to earth
If in thy comely, smiling and limpid sky
The image of the (Southern) Cross blazes.

Giant by thine own nature,
Thou art beautiful, thou art strong, an impavid colossus,
And thy future mirrors that greatness.

Adored Land
Amongst a thousand others
Art thou, Brazil,
O beloved homeland!

Of the sons of this ground
Thou art kind mother,
Beloved homeland,
Brazil!

Eternally lying on a splendid cradle,
To the sound of the sea and under deep sky light
Thou flarest, O Brazil, crocket of America,
Illuminated by the sun of New World!

Than the showiest land,
Thy smiling, pretty prairies have more flowers
"Our groves have more life",
"Our life" in thy bosom "more loves". (*)

O beloved,
Idolized homeland,
Hail, hail!

Brazil, of eternal love be a symbol
The starred labarum which thou displayst
And say the laurel-green of thy pennant
'Peace in the future and glory in the past.'

But if thou raisest the strong cudgel of Justice,
Thou wilt see that a son of thine flees not from battle,
Nor do those who love thee fear death itself.

Beloved Land,
Amongst a thousand others
Art thou, Brazil,
O beloved homeland!

Of the sons of this ground
Thou art gentle mother,
Beloved homeland,
Brazil!
