Let morning shine on the silver and gold of this land,
Three thousand ri packed with natural wealth.
This is my beautiful fatherland.
The glory of a wise people
Brought up in a culture brilliant
With a history of five millennia long.
Let us devote our bodies and minds
To supporting this Korea forever.
Embracing the atmosphere of Baekdu Mountain,
Nest for the spirit of labour,
The firm will, bonded with truth,
Will go forth to all the world.
The country established by the will of the people,
Breasting the raging waves with soaring strength.
Let us glorify forever this Korea,
Limitlessly rich and strong.
