Taiwan National Anthem Text (Native in Wade-Gile):


San-min-chu-i, Wu-tang so tsung;


i-chien min-kuo, i-chin ta-t'ung.

Anthem Lyrics English

Our aim shall be to found a free land.

World peace be our stand.

Lead on, comrades, vanguards ye are.

Hold fast your aim, by sun and star.

Be earnest and brave, your country to save.

One heart, one soul, one mind, one goal!
