Estrofa 1

Ya se mira el horizonte

Combatiente zapatista

El camino marcará

A los que vienen atrás

First Stanza

Now we can see the horizon

Zapatista combatant

The way will mark

Those that come after us

Vamos, vamos, vamos, vamos adelante

Para que salgamos en la lucha avante

Porque nuestra Patria grita y necesita

De todo el esfuerzo de los zapatistas

Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go forward!

To take part in the struggle ahead

Because our Fatherland cries out for and needs

All of the effort of the Zapatistas
