Anthem Lyrics English

We are a valiant people, sons of honour,


And all we’ve sacrificed to gain our freedom.


Emerging from malicious grip of fate, from hell of fire,


We scored a victory of glory and success

Refrain:


Soar high up in the sky, oh, eagle of freedom,


Call up to harmony, agreement and accord!


For hero’s might and strength is in the nation,


Just as the unity is nation’s razing sword.


While honouring our mothers and respecting


The cream of cream of our rising nation


We welcomed all ill-starred and struck by ruin...


Our homeland, the steppe, a sacred cradle


Of friendship and accord


Gave all a shelter and a hearty refuge

Refrain


We’ve overcome the hardships


Let the past serve bitter lesson


But ahead we face a radiant future.


We bequeath our sacred legacy implying our mother tongue


And sovereignty and valour and traditions


So dearly cherished by our forefathers


As true mandate to future generations.

Refrain
