lyrics

The sleepy pueblo of Maricao
Will rise and shine again
The vista of El Faro
Shall still inspire the pen

The peace found in Utuado
Will soothe and leave its mark
And Plaza de Santurce
Will be festive after dark

The spirit of Boricuas
Can ache but not be crushed
The voice of those who doubt them
Will silence and be hushed

At Lechoneras in Guavate
Camaraderie will reign
The coqui always there to ease
The evenings and the pain

Ciales and Yauco will
Again spill precious beans
That bless with premiere coffees
Worthy of both kings and queens

The spirit of Boricuas
Can ache but not be crushed
The voice of those who doubt them
Will silence and be hushed

The phosphorescent bay will glow
to kayakers delight
The wonder of El Yunque will
Refresh once passed the blight

Vieques and Culebra
Regain their ship-shape form
Heaven on earth is Boqueron
Its waters calm and warm

La tierra de Borinquen
Has sustained a mighty blow
Dios guide it to the finish line
A win a place and show

The spirit of Boricuas
Can ache but not be crushed
The voice of those who doubt them
Will silence and be hushed

(spoken)
La Isla speaks a language
Where resilience is elemental
So keep it in your prayer, amigo
Cherish the sentimental

It will take time to bloom again
But know Thy will be done
Borinquen is a land that bathes
In rays of The Lord's Sun

Puerto Rico, Isla del Encanto,
Borinquen tu estas en mi alma
Puerto Rico, when misfortune calls,
Answer that you’re strong as El Morro’s walls
