La Borinqueña is the commonwealth anthem of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.


The land of Borinquen
where I was born
is a flowery garden
of magical beauty.
A constantly clear sky
serves as its canopy.
And placid lullabies are sung
by the waves at its feet.
When at her beaches Columbus arrived;
he exclaimed full of admiration
“Oh! Oh! Oh!
This is the beautiful land
that I seek.”
Borinquen is the daughter,
the daughter of the sea and the sun.
Of the sea and the sun,
Of the sea and the sun,
Of the sea and the sun,
Of the sea and the sun.
