Anthem Lyrics English

Unbreakable Union of freeborn Republics,

Great Russia has welded forever to stand.

Created in struggle by will of the people,

United and mighty, our Soviet land!

Sing to the Motherland, home of the free,

Bulwark of peoples in brotherhood strong.

O Party of Lenin, the strength of the people,

To Communism's triumph lead us on!

Through tempests the sunrays of freedom have

cheered us,Along the new path where great Lenin did lead.

To a righteous cause he raised up the peoples,

Inspired them to labour and valorous deed.

[Or, the old way:

Be true to the people, thus Stalin has reared

us, Inspire us to labor and valorous deed!]

Sing to the Motherland, home of the free,

Bulwark of peoples in brotherhood strong.

O Party of Lenin, the strength of the people,

To Communism's triumph lead us on!

In the vict'ry of Communism's deathless ideal,

We see the future of our dear land.

And to her fluttering scarlet banner,

Selflessly true we always shall stand!

The Hymn of the Soviet Union (CPSU Version)

Unbreakable Union of freeborn Republics, Great Russia has

welded forever to stand. Created in struggle by will of the people, United and mighty, our Soviet land!

Sing to the Motherland, home of the free, Bulwark of peoples

in brotherhood strong. O Party of Lenin, the strength of the people, To Communism's triumph lead us on!

Through tempests the sunrays of freedom have cheered us, Along

the new path where great Lenin did lead. To a righteous cause he raised up the peoples, Inspired them to labor and valorous deed. [Or, the old way: Be true to the people, thus Stalin has reared us, Inspire us to labor and valorous deed!]

Sing to the Motherland, home of the free, Bulwark of peoples

in brotherhood strong. O Party of Lenin, the strength of the people, To Communism's triumph lead us on!

In the vict'ry of Communism's deathless ideal, We see the

future of our dear land. And to her fluttering scarlet banner, Selflessly true we always shall stand!
