Armenian anthem lyrics (English translation)
Our Fatherland, miserable, abandoned,
That has downtrodden by his enemies,
Is now summoning its sons
To take revenge, spite and malice.
Here is a flag for you, my brother,
That I have sewn with my own hand
Over the sleepless nights,
And rinsed with my tears.
Look at it, tricolored,
A valuable symbol for us.
Let it shine towards the ignorant,
Let Austria to be destroyed.
Death is the same everywhere,
A man dies but once,
Blessed is the one that dies
For the freedom of his nation.
