La Música de

Miguel Angel Maymón

compositor puertorriqueño

de la musica de antaño


In 1954, Miguel wrote the 'Hymn of The Lions Club of Puerto Rico'

during a contest held by the Puerto Rico Chapter,

of the American Lions Club organization.

His composition was chosen to become the Official Hymn.

At that time his friend and famous Trumpet player,

Mr. Augusto Coén, prepared an arrangement of this Hymn

but I have not found any recording of it.


The following recreation of this Hymn was performed by Josie Maymón

using the original score, and a Yamaha Sequencer.

'Himno del Leonismo Puertorriqueño'

Miguel A. Maymón 1954 

performance by Josie Maymón

Original score of the 'Himno del Leonismo Puertorriqueño'

and a marble lion sculpture given to Miguel in 1955

by the Lions Club of Puerto Rico.

"Puerto Rico, Patria de mi amor

es mi sólo ideal,  darte gloria y honor

en tu fértil suelo tropical

está mi porvenir, está mi libertad


Somos los Futuros, Agricultores Borincanos

que al son del estudio avanzámos,

en pos, de un divino ideal


Cantemos que el sol naciente

con sus fulgores, alumbrará,

la árdua labor de Los Futuros Agricultores

Los Triunfadores de la Posteridad"

"Puerto Rico, Homeland of my Heart,

it's my only ideal, to give you Glory and Honor

in your fertile tropical soil

lies my future, lies my freedom.


We are the future puertorican farmers,

advancing through our studies,

in search of an ideal,


Let's all sing that the rising Sun,

with its rays will shine,

on the hard labor of us future farmers,

triumphantly into posterity"
