A nation struggling for birth,
Hail, young Russia!
Newest of all upon earth,
Welcome, Russia!
Time's invincible spawn,
Out of the darkness drawn
Into the light of the dawn,
Hail, young Russia!

Gasping with difficult breath,
Cry, young Russia!
Hung with fragments of death,
Shake free, Russia!
Out of the womb of the past,
Russia, alive at last!
Hold to your life, hold fast!
Long live Russia!
