Vivimos con cariño bajo este azul del cielo labrando con anhelo </li></ul><ul><li>dichoso porvenir. </li></ul><ul><li>Carmín en las mejillas del pueblo laborioso, revela el don precioso de entera libertad. Ganaste en los combates de Santa Rosa y Rivas las glorias siempre vivas de honor y lealtad. Como ala protectora en toda Costa Rica tu emblema dignifica el santo patrio amor.
