Excerpt

Sobre as trevas infernaes!
Traz de fogo a fera espada,
E com mão ensanguentada
Rasgas as purpuras reaes.

Sobre o solio dos Affonsos
Ferreo sceptro esmaga a lei:
Ruge alli o despotismo
Se não verga ao servilismo
Quem lhe diz «Tu não és Rei!»
Não és Rei! és uma affronta
Feita ao povo portuguez!
Não és Rei que não herdaste
Este chão que escravisaste
A quem falso Rei te fez!

Vaga o anjo do exterminio
Como inspiração do algoz!
Corações com Vossa imagem,
Oh meu Rei! são a carnagem
Do punhal que fere atroz!
Foram dias de martyrio,
De terror e maldição!
Mas o martyr, expirando,
Esquecia-Vos só quando
Lhe morria o coração!

Vaga o anjo do exterminio
Do mosteiro sobre a cruz,
E roçando a negra aza
Pela cruz o templo arraza
