My country, sunny and free, salvation to your people,
You are a warmhearted companion to the friends
Flourish eternally with knowledge and invention,
May your fame shine as long as the world exists!

Manly spirit of ancestors is companion to you!
When the great power of people became exuberant
You are the country that amazes the world!

Free, young children are a strong wing for you!
The torch of independence, guardian of peace,
Just motherland be eternally prosperous!

You are the country that amazes the world!
