Costa Rica National Anthem

Noble fatherland, your beautiful flag

inspires our lives:

under the clear blue of your sky

rests peace, white and pure.

In the tenacious fight of fruitful work

which reddens men`s faces,

conquered your children - simple


eternal prestige, esteem and honor.

Hail, oh gentle earth!

Hail, oh mother of love!

should anyone try to stain your


you`ll see your people, brave and


a rough tool change into a weapon

Hail, oh fatherland!, your lavish


sweet shelter and subsistence

gives us

under the clear blue of your sky,

long live always work and peace!
