Chechen National Anthem

We were born at night, when the she-wolf whelped.
In the morning, as lions howl, we were given our names.
In eagles nests, our Mothers nursed us,
To tame a stallion , our Fathers taught us.
We were devoted to our Mothers, to people and the Native land,
And if they will need us – we’ll respond courageously,
We grew up free, together with the mountain eagles,
Difficulties and obstacles we overcame with dignity.
Granite rocks will sooner fuse like lead,
Than we lose our Nobility in life and struggle.
The Earth will sooner be breached in boiling sun,
Than we appear before the world; losing our honor.
Never will we appear submissive before anyone,
Death or Freedom – we can choose only one way.
Our sisters cure our wounds by their songs,
The eyes of the beloved arouse us to the feat of arms.
If hunger gets us down – we’ll gnaw the roots.
If thirst harasses us – we’ll drink the grass dew.
We were born at night, when the she-wolf whelped.
God, Nation, and the Native land –
We devote ourselves only to their service.
The Star, Hammer and Sickle
Unbreakable Union of freeborn Republics,
Great Russia has welded forever to stand.
Created in struggle by will of the people,United and mighty,
our Soviet land! Sing to the Motherland, home of the
free, Bulwark of peoples in brotherhood strong.
O Party of Lenin , the strength of the people,
To Communism’s triumph lead us on!
Through tempests the sunrays of freedom have cheered us,
Along the new path where great Lenin did lead.
To a righteous cause he raised up the peoples,
Inspired them to labor and valorous deed.
Sing to the Motherland, home of the free,
Bulwark of peoples in brotherhood strong.
O Party of Lenin, the strength of the people,
To Communism’s triumph lead us on!
In the vict’ry of Communism’s deathless ideal,
We see the future of our dear land.
And to her fluttering scarlet banner,
Selflessly true we always shall stand!
