Long live the New State! Viva! Long live Portugal free and independent! Viva! Salazar! Salazar! Salazar! Mr. President of the Republic and Mr. Navy Minister Officials and Soldiers People of the Minho and of Portugal It is now 10 years, in this same city Under the orders of Gomes da Costa Whose optimism and bravery almost were not virtues For they sprang spontaneously from the soul, as demanded from nature itself The Portuguese Army had unleashed a movement Triumphant, without a fight Glorious, without blood For in truth, the voice of command was only the military expression of an irresistable order of the nation And started the new era Hear now what happened To the souls torn by the doubt and the negativism of the century We sought to deliver the comfort of the great certainties We don’t debate god and virtue We don’t debate the fatherland and its history We don’t debate its authority and its prestige We don’t debate the family and its morals We don’t debate the glory of work or the duty of it Thus were laid the great pillars of the edifice and were built the peace, the order, the unity of the Portuguese The strong state, the prestigious authority, the honest administration The reinvigoration of the economy, the patriotic sentiment, the corporative organization and the colonial empire. Sirs. Ends today 10 years that constituted but an era of restoration in the fatherland’s history Another 10 are to begin that shall constitute an era of elevation To build upon tougher sacrifices, higher heroism and surer dedications I should not like to go from here without knowing who has the courage to come with us All! All! Salazar! Salazar! Salazar! Carmona! Carmona! Carmona!
