About:

Musically, the Uruguayan anthem is the longest anthem in the world - a standard performance is 106 bars of music and takes around five minutes. It is of a similar epic style to other South American anthems. Indeed, the lyricist, Francisco Acuña de Figueroa, also wrote the lyrics for the Paraguayan anthem. It was officially adopted in 1848, and readopted after changes to the lyrics in 1938.

Spanish:

Orientales la Patria o la Tumba!
Libertad o con gloria morir!
Orientales la Patria o la Tumba!
Libertad o con gloria morir!

Es el voto que el alma pronuncia,
Y que heroicos sabremos cumplir!
Es el voto que el alma pronuncia,
Y que heroicos sabremos cumplir!

Que sabremos cumplir!

Es el voto que el alma pronuncia,
Y que heroicos sabremos cumplir!

Que sabremos cumplir!

Sabremos cumplir!
Sabremos cumplir!
Sabremos cumplir!

Libertad, libertad Orientales!
Este grito à la Patria salvó.
Que a sus bravos en fieras batallas
De entusiasmo sublime inflamó.

Libertad, libertad Orientales!
Este grito à la Patria salvó.
Que a sus bravos en fieras batallas
De entusiasmo sublime inflamó.

De este don sacrosanto la gloria
Merecimos: tiranos temblad!

Tiranos temblad!
Tiranos temblad!

Libertad en la lid clamaremos,
Y muriendo, también libertad!

Libertad en la lid clamaremos,
Y muriendo, también libertad!
Y muriendo, también libertad!

También libertad!
También libertad!

Orientales la Patria o la Tumba!
Libertad o con gloria morir!

Orientales la Patria o la Tumba!
Libertad o con gloria morir!

Es el voto que el alma pronuncia,
Y que heroicos sabremos cumplir!

Es el voto que el alma pronuncia,
Y que heroicos sabremos cumplir!

Que sabremos cumplir!

Es el voto que el alma pronuncia,
Y que heroicos sabremos cumplir!

Que sabremos cumplir!

Sabremos cumplir!
Sabremos cumplir!
Sabremos cumplir!
