Gloria Al Bravo Pueblo (Glory to the Brave People) was adopted as Venezuela's national anthem by President Antonio Guzman Blanco in 1881. It was written by Juan Landaeta around 1810. Below is the words of the national anthem in spanish, also below the text I have a link to listen to the national anthem sung by Ilan Chester. A nice version, worth listening to it.

GLORIA AL BRAVO PUEBLO ...

CHORUS:

Gloria al bravo pueblo
que el yugo lanzó
la ley respetando
la virtud y honor.
(repeat chorus)

¡Abajo cadenas!
(repeat)
gritaba el Señor
(repeat)
y el pobre en su choza
libertad pidió
A este santo nombre
(repeat)
tembló de pavor
el vil egoísmo
que otra vez triunfó.
(repeat previous two lines)

CHORUS:

Gritemos con brío:
(repeat)
¡Muera la opresión!
(repeat)
Compatriotas fieles,
la fuerza es la unión;
y desde el Empíreo
(repeat)
el Supremo Autor,
un sublime aliento
al pueblo infundió.
(repeat previous two lines)

CHORUS

Unida con lazos
(repeat)
que el cielo formó
(repeat)
la América toda
existe en nación.
Y si el despotismo
(repeat)
levanta la voz
seguid el ejemplo
que Caracas dio.
(repeat previous two lines)

CHORUS

National Anthem Sung by Ilan Chester.
