Until that day when Mt. Baekdu is worn away
And the East Sea's waters run dry,
God protect and preserve our country!
Hibiscus and Three thousand ri full
Of splendid mountains and rivers;
Great Koreans, to the Great Korean way, stay always true!
As the pine atop Namsan Peak stands firm,
Unchanged through wind and frost,
as if wrapped in armour, so shall our resilient spirit.
The Autumn skies are void and vast, high and cloudless;
the bright moon is like our heart, undivided and true.
With this spirit and this mind, let us give all loyalty,
in suffering or in joy, to the country's love.
