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"
