Coat of Arm South Korea


동해물과 백두산이 마르고
닳도록 하느님이 보우하사
우리 나라만세

남산위에 저 소나무 철갑을
두른 듯 바람서리 불변함은
우리 기상일세.

가을하늘 공활한데 높고
구름없이 밝은달은 우리가슴

이기상과 이맘으로 충성을 다하여
괴로우나 즐거우나 나라 사랑하세.

무궁화 삼천리 화려강산
대한사람 대한으로 길이 보전하세.

Patriotic Song

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.
