Armenia National Anthem
English Translation
Our Fatherland, free, independent,
That has for centuries lived,
Is now summoning its sons
To the free, independent Armenia.

Is now summoning its sons
To the free, independent Armenia.

Here is a flag for you, my brother,
That I have sewn
Over the sleepless nights,
And bathed in my tears.

Over the sleepless nights,
And bathed in my tears.

Look at it, tricolored,
A valuable symbol for us.
Let it shine against the enemy,
Let you, Armenia, be glorious forever.

Let it shine against the enemy,
Let you, Armenia, be glorious forever.

Death is the same everywhere,
A man dies but once,
Blessed is the one that dies
For the freedom of his nation.

Blessed is the one that dies
For the freedom of his nation
