Youth of Alvernia forward,
Conquering virtue and knowledge
A volcano of ideals the soul
And in the mind the light of faith.

Alba flower of science we seek
With subtle aromas of virtue
And shall be her orchard our souls,
Her smile happy youth.

If Francisco lived in the Alvernia
His divine poem of love,
Our Alvernia is also a poem
Of nobility, virtues and honor.

Chorus (encore)

To the ideal summit of the Alvernia
we will climb paths of light, noble guide carrying science
and a divine torch, the cross.

As the blue of the skies radiates
over all Colombia triumphant to radiate
with the light of the idea
of the Alvernia will be the ideal.

Chorus (encore)

Sweet Alvernia that evokes to the soul
the smiling miracle of Assisi,
our souls will be reliquaries
of your holy happy memory.

If Francisco brought from Alvernia
five stigmata of regal splendor,
from Alvernia we will also bring
science, happiness, virtue, light and love.
