Andorra National Anthem Lyrics

El Gran Carlemany (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 Prínceps defensors!

The Great Charlemagne (English Translation)

The great Charlemagne, my Father,
from the Saracens liberated me
And from heaven he gave me life,
of 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

Believing and free for eleven centuries,
a believer and free I will be.
The laws of the land be my tutors,
and my defender Princes!

And my defender Princes!
