History and Background--
The Ecuadorian national anthem is another example of a "Latin American epic anthem". The anthem was composed by Antonio Neumane on the request of Juan León Mera and the same was officially adopted by the Congress on September 29, 1948.
The National Anthem of Ecuador is of a marchlike rhythm and is written in the grandiloquent style one is apt to associate with romantic piano sonatas. The tune is full of dash and ardor. There's no doubt about the German background of Antonio Neumane, the composer.
The national anthem of Ecuador consists of a chorus and six verses out of which only the second verse and the chorus are sung. But in formal occasion the whole national anthem is sung.
The Ecuador's national anthem is honored by all the citizens and due respect shown, especially while performing the national anthem.
So here's sharing with you the English version of the two verses of 'We Salute You Our Homeland'.
O homeland, we greet you a thousand times!
Glory be to you, O homeland, glory be to you!
Your breast overflows with joy and peace,
And we see your radiant face shining
More brightly than the sun.
The worthy sons of the soil
Which Pichincha on high is adorning,
Always acclaimed you as sovereign lady
And shed their blood for you.
God observed and accepted the sacrifice,
And that blood was the prolific seed
Of other heroes whom the world in astonishment saw
Arising in thousands around you.
