Lyrics[edit]

Bulgarian Cyrillic Transliteration English Translation
Всемогъщий правий Боже,
молим Царя ни пази,
дай му сила, за да може
зли поврати да срази.
За погром на враговете
и за славни бъднини,
Боже, царю на царете
дай на Царя светли дни.
А на българското племе
ума Боже просвети,
със любов да се обеме
и задружно процъфти.
Чрез съгласие да може
сила, воля да развий,
чрез напредък дай му, Боже,
славно име да добий!
Vsemogashtiy praviy Bozhe,
molim Tsarya ni pazi,
day mu sila, za da mozhe
zli povrati da srazi.
Za pogrom na vragovete
i za slavni badnini,
Bozhe, tsaryu na tsarete
day na Tsarya svetli dni.
A na balgarskoto pleme
uma Bozhe prosveti,
sas lyubov da se obeme
i zadruzhno protsafti.
Chrez saglasie da mozhe
sila, volya da razviy,
chrez napredak day mu, Bozhe,
slavno ime da dobiy!
Almighty, righteous God,
We pray, save our Tsar,
Give him might to overwhelm
Dire vicissitudes.
For defeat of the foes
And for a glorious future,
Oh God, Tsar of Tsars,
Give the Tsar bright days.
And enlighten the minds, oh God,
Of the Bulgarian people,
Let them be filled with love
And flourish in unity.
Let them through accord
Develop their strength and will,
Through progress grant them, oh God,
To deserve an honourable name!
