Cara al sol con la camisa nueva
que tu bordaste rojo ayer hallaras
la muerte si te llega y no te
vuelvo a ver formare junto a
mis comañeros que hacen guardia
sobre los luceros impasible el ademan
y están presentes en nuestro afan si
te dicen que cai me fui al puesto que
tengo alli volveran banderas victoriosas
al paso alegre de la paz y seran prendidas
cinco rosas las flechas de mi paz volvera
a reir la primavera que por cielo y tierra
y mar esperan arriba a España y a vencer,
que en España empieza a
AMANECER
