Armenia National Anthem

Armenia National Anthem
Our Fatherland (Mer Hayrenik)

Lyrics
Our Fatherland, free, independent,
That has lived for centuries,
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 sewed
Over the sleepless nights,
And bathed in my tears.

Over the sleepless nights,
And bathed in my tears.

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

Let it shine against the enemy.
Let 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.

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

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