Macedonian anthem lyrics (English translation)
Today over Macedonia, is being born
the new sun of liberty.
Macedonians are fighting,
fighting for their rights!
Macedonians are fighting,
fighting for their rights!
Now once again the flag stands
(that) of the Krushevo Republic
Gotse Delchev, Pitu Guli
Dame Gruev, Sandanski!
Goce Delchev, Pitu Guli
Dame Gruev, Sandanski!
The Forests of Macedonia are singing
new songs, new papers
Macedonia is liberated
Lives in liberty!
Macedonia is liberated
Lives in liberty!
Do not cry dear mother Macedonia,
Raise your head proudly high,
Macedonia is free
Free to live!
Macedonia is free
Free to live!
