Chinese anthem lyrics (English translation)
Arise! All those who refuse to be slaves!
Let our flesh and blood forge our new Great Wall!
The Chinese nation has arrived at its most perilous time.
Every person is forced to expel their final roar.
Arise! Arise! Arise!
One million hearts beating as one,
Brave the enemy’s fire, March on!
Brave the enemy’s fire, March on!
March on! March on! On!
