Little is known of Genaro Codina. His composition was written as a kind of mock "duel" at a family gathering of the Villalpando family. It is now considered an anthem of Mexico, 2d only to the Hymno Nacional, al grito de guerra.


Prestos estad a combatir
Oid llamad, suena el clarin
Las armas pronto preparad
Y la victoria disputad.


Be ready to fight
Hear the call, the bugle sounds
The weapons will soon prepare
And disputed the victory.

Prestos estad, suena el clarin
Anuncia ya proxima lid
Vibrando esta su clamor
Marchemos con gran valor.

Be ready, the bugle sounds
And announces next fight
Vibrating is its clamor
March with great value.

Estrofa I:

Si, a la lidia marchemos
Que es hora ya de combatir con gran valor
Con fiero ardor hasta morir
Hasta morir o hasta vencer.

Stanza I:

Yes, march to fighting
That it is time to fight with great courage
With fierce burning to death
To death or to victory.

Estrofa II y V:

Como huracan que en su furor
Las olas rompen en el mar
Con rudo empuje y con valor
Sobre las huestes avanzad.

Stanza II and V:

As a hurricane in its fury
The waves breaking on the sea
With hard drive and with value
Move forward on the enemy.

Estrofa III y VI:

No os detengais, no hay temor
Pronto el ataque apresurad
Guerra sin tregua al invasor
Viva la patria y la libertad
Viva la libertad, viva
Viva la libertad, viva
Que viva si, viva.

Stanza III and VI:

Don't stop, no fear
Soon hurry the attack
War without truce against invading
Long live the Fatherland and Freedom.
Long live freedom, long live
Long live freedom, long live
Long live yes, long live

Estrofa IV:

Oh Patria mía
Tu hermoso pabellón
Siempre sabremos
Llevarlo con honor.

Stanza IV:

Oh my country
Your beautiful flag
We always will
Carry it with honor.
