The lyrics[edit]

Marcha de Oriamendi

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. (bis)

Cueste lo que cueste
Se ha de conseguir
Venga el Rey de España
A la corte de Madrid. (bis)

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

March of Oriamendi

For God, Fatherland and the King
Our forefathers fought.
For God, Fatherland and the King,
We will fight as well.

We shall fight, all together,
All together in union
Defending the banner
Of Sacred Tradition.(repeat)

At whatever cost,
Acquired it must be -
Return the King of Spain
To the court of Madrid. (repeat)

For God, Fatherland and the King
Our forefathers fought.
For God, Fatherland and the King
We will fight as well.

The original lyrics was in Basque. The lyrics in Castellano was written in 1908 by Ignacio Baleztena Ascárate as "Marcha Jaimista". Over the years, several versions of "Oriamendi" have been in use. From 1936 to 1939, the line in the fourth verse - "venga el Rey de España a la corte de Madrid" - was replaced by "que los boinas rojas entren en Madrid" ("the red berets shall conquer Madrid"). In this context, "los boinas rojas" means the "requetés" or Carlist soldiers. The red berets are part of the Carlist uniform.

"God, Fatherland, King" (sometimes "God, Fatherland, Custom Law, King") is the Carlist motto.

Montejurra (Basque Jurramendi) is another battle of symbolic importance to Carlists.

Original Lyrics[edit]

Gora Jainko maite maitea '
zagun denon jabe. '
Gora España ta Euskalerria '
ta bidezko errege.
Maite degu Euskalerria, '
maite bere Fuero zarrak, '
asmo ontara jarriz daude '
beti Karlista indarrak. '
Gora Jaungoiko illezkor!!!
Gora euskalduna, '
audo ondo Españia-ko '
errege bera duna!!! '
