Montenegrin anthem lyrics (English translation)
Oh, bright dawn of May
Our mother Montenegro
We are sons of your rocks
and keepers of your honesty
We love you, the rocky hills
And your awesome gorges
That never came to know
The chains of shameful slavery.
While our unity gives wings
to our Lovִ‡en cause
Proud shall be, celebrated will be
Our dear homeland.
A river of our waves,
Jumping into two seas,
Will bear voice to the ocean,
May eternal be our Montenegro!
