Altin bu vadiylar - jan Ozbekistan,
Ajdadlar mardana ruhi senga yar!
Ulugh khalq qudrati josh urgan zaman,
Alamni mahliya aylagan diyar!
Baghri keng ozbekning ochmas iymani.
Erkin, yash avladlar senga zor qanat!
Istiqlal mash' ali, tinchlik pasbani,
Khaqsevar ana yurt, mangu bol abad!
These valleys are golden - my dear Uzbekistan,
Our forefathers' manly spirits your companion!
Strength of great people in turbulent times
Made this land the world's joy!
Oh! Generous Uzbek, your faith will not fade,
Free, young generations are your mighty wings!
The torch of independence, guardians of peace,
Oh! Worthy motherland, flourish and prosper eternally!
