Anthem Lyrics English

The great creation of Turkmenbashy,

Native land, sovereign state,

Turkmenistan, light and song of soul,

Long live and prosper for ever and ever!

I am ready to give life for native hearth,

The spirit of ancestors descendants are famous for,

My land is sacred. My flag flies in the world

A symbol of the great neutral country flies.

The great creation of Turkmenbashy,

Native land, sovereign state,

Turkmenistan, light and song of soul,

Long live and prosper for ever and ever!

My nation is united and is veins of tribes

Ancestors’ blood, undying flows,

Storms and misfortunes of times are not dreadful for us,

Let us increase fame and honour!

The great creation of Turkmenbashy,

Native land, sovereign state,

Turkmenistan, light and song of soul,

Long live and prosper for ever and ever!

Mountains, rivers and beauty of steppes,

Love and destiny, revelation of mine,

Let my eyes go blind for any cruel look at you,

Motherland of ancestors and heirs of mine!
