Šai zemē visdārgā mēs brīvību guvām,
Te paaudžu paaudzēm laimīgam dzimt,
Te šalc mūsu jūra, te zied mūsu druvas,
Te skan mūsu pilsētas, Rīga te dimd.
Padomju Latvija mūžos lai dzīvo,
Spoža lai Padomju vainagā mirdz!
Mēs cēlāmies, verdzības važas lai rautu,
Par gadsimtu cīņām ik vieta vēl teic.
Vien biedros ar diženās Krievzemes tautu
Mēs kļuvām par spēku, kas pretvaru veic.
Padomju Latvija mūžos lai dzīvo,
Spoža lai Padomju vainagā mirdz!
Pa Ļeņina ceļu uz laimi un slavu
Ar Oktobra karogu iesim mūždien.
Mēs sargāsim Padomju Tēvzemi savu
Līdz pēdējai asiņu lāsei ikviens.
Padomju Latvija mūžos lai dzīvo,
Spoža lai Padomju vainagā mirdz!
Padomju Latvija mūžos lai dzīvo,
Spoža lai Padomju vainagā mirdz!
Свободен навеки народ наш счастливый,
Путь светлый для всех поколений открыт.
Шумит наше море, цветут наши нивы,
В семье городов наша Рига гремит.
Славься, Советская Латвия наша,
Ярко в созвездии республик сияй!
Не раз мы за волю ходили походом,
Бесправия цепи пытались разбить,
Лишь в дружбе незыблемой с русским народом
Смогли мы неправду и зло победить.
Славься, Советская Латвия наша,
Ярко в созвездии республик сияй!
Под знаменем Ленина к счастью и славе
Путем Октября мы победно идем.
Верны мы великой Советской державе
И кровь за нее, если надо, прольем!
Славься, Советская Латвия наша,
Ярко в созвездии республик сияй!
Славься, Советская Латвия наша,
Ярко в созвездии республик сияй!
In this land most dear we gained our freedom,
Generation upon generation blessed to be born here,
Here our seas sigh, here our fields blossom,
Here our cities ring out, here Riga resounds.
Let Soviet Latvia live for ever,
Let it shine bright in the Soviet crown!
We rose to break chains of slavery,
About centuries' long struggles it is told in every place.
Only in fraternity with the august Russian nation
We become a power to wage revolution.
Let Soviet Latvia live for ever,
Let it shine bright in the Soviet crown!
On Lenin's road to blessings and glory,
With the flag of October we will go on forever.
We will guard our Soviet Fatherland,
Everyone to the last drop of our blood.
Let Soviet Latvia live for ever,
Let it shine bright in the Soviet crown!
Let Soviet Latvia live for ever,
Let it shine bright in the Soviet crown!
Free forever our people happy,
Light path is open to all ages.
Rustles our sea, our flower fields;
In the family of our cities Riga rattles.
Glory to our Soviet Latvia,
Brightly in the constellation republics shine on!
Time and again, we will go for the campaign,
Tried to break the chain of lawlessness,
Only in the unshakable friendship with the Russian people
We were able to defeat the evil and falsehood.
Glory to our Soviet Latvia,
Brightly in the constellation republics shine on!
Under the banner of Lenin to the happiness and glory
By October we are going triumphantly.
We are true of the great Soviet Power
And the blood for her, if necessary, to shed!
Glory to our Soviet Latvia,
Brightly in the constellation republics shine on!
Glory to our Soviet Latvia,
Brightly in the constellation republics shine on!
