O my Puerto Rico1

O my Puerto Rico!
Your soul is Beauty’s flow,
Your heart is Duty’s glow.

O my Puerto Rico!
Your simple life of Truth
Is God’s Perfection-Ruth.

To you I bow, to you I bow,
In our Lord’s Eternity-Now.
To you I bow, to you I bow,
O my Puerto Rico!


  1. Dedicated to: Rafael Hernandez Colon — Governor of Puerto Rico, 21 February 1975
