national anthem


English, USA
I have seen two different versions of this line in the third verse of the national anthem:

“Viaţa-n libertate ori moarte” strigă toţi

“Viaţă-n libertate ori moarte!” strigăm toţi

Are they both grammatically correct? What is the difference in meaning (if any)?
  • They are both gramatically correct. "strigă" is 3rd person plural and 1st person singular (in this case it's the 3rd person plural): they call/cry, while "strigăm" is 1st person plural: we cry.

    The correct verse is: "“Viaţa-n libertate ori moarte” strigă toţi" (see
    and it means:
    <<"Life in freedom or death" they all cry>>
