Lyrics:

Catalan:

El gran Carlemany, mon Pare dels alarbs em deslliurà,
I del cel vida em donà de Meritxell, la gran Mare,
Princesa nasquí i Pubilla entre dues nacions, neutral
Sols resto l’única filla de l’imperi Carlemany.
Creient i lliure onze segles, creient i lliure vull ser.
Siguin els furs mos tutors i mos Prínceps defensors!
I mos Princeps defensors!

English:

The great Charlemagne, my Father, liberated me from the Saracens,
And from heaven he gave me life from Meritxell, the great Mother.
I was born a Princess, a Maiden neutral between two nations.
I am the only remaining daughter of the Carolingian empire
A believer and free for eleven centuries, a believer and free I want to be.
Be the laws of the land my tutors, and my Princes my defenders!
And my Princes my defenders!
