Por Dios, por la Patria y el Rey,
or Marcha de Oriamendi

A song of the Spanish Carlist War

The Carlist movement of Spain is the traditionalist political movement that aims to restore the Carlist dynasty to the throne and protect Spain from the liberal influences of the French Revolution. Por Dios, por la Patria y el Rey or Marcha de Oriamendi, commemorates the battle of Oriamendi in 1837, when the Carlists defeated the liberal British army. In the 20th century the Carlists fought during the bloody Spanish Civil War to prevent Communism from taking over the government of Spain.

Marcha de Oriamendi is the anthem of the Carlist movement. Its high spirited tone reflects the militancy of the Catholic Carlist volunteers who effectively fought the war, known as Requetés. This march epitomized the ideals of the Catholic soldier fighting for God, Country, and King.

The lyrics were written by Ignacio Baleztena Azcarate,
and the music was arranged by Silvano Cervantes.



Listen to Por Dios, por la Patria y el Rey

Spanish Lyrics:

Por Dios, por la Patria y el Rey,
Lucharon nuestros padres.
Por Dios, por la Patria y el Rey,
Lucharemos nosotros también.

Lucharemos todos juntos,
Todos juntos en unión.
Defendiendo la bandera,
De la Santa Tradición.

Lucharemos todos juntos,
Todos juntos en unión.
Defendiendo la bandera,
De la Santa Tradición.

Cueste lo que cueste,
Se ha de conseguir.
Que los boinas rojas,
Entren en Madrid.

Por Dios, por la Patria y el Rey,
Lucharon nuestros padres.
Por Dios, por la Patria y el Rey,
Lucharemos nosotros también.
Translation:

For God, Country and King,
Our forefathers fought.
For God, Country and King,
We shall fight as well.

We shall fight, all together,
All together united.
Defending the banner
Of Sacred Tradition.

We shall fight, all together,
All together united.
Defending the banner,
Of Sacred Tradition.

At whatever cost,
We shall manage to arrange
That the red berets
Enter Madrid.

For God, Country and King,
Our forefathers fought.
For God, Country and King,
We shall fight as well.
