GAZE through the opal mist across the main
On ancient walls that rear their grandeur high
Unto the kiss of a Castilian sky.
Golden the glory of that storied Spain,
Heavy with conquest and its dazzling gain;
Valiant the pride that only dared to die
For honor's sake — never to question why;
Mighty her prowess, its resistance vain.

Gaze yet again through sulph'rous mist and fire,
Another Spain yields up her helpless wrecks
Of stubborn pride to Freedom's last desire.
No tyrant heel again shall tread their decks,
And as they moulder on surrendered strands
Spain's castles crumble into desert sands.
