Lyrics[edit]

Russian Transliteration
Край родной — Карелия!
Древняя мудрая земля.
Братских племён одна семья,
Карелия!
Звените, озёра, и пой, тайга!
Родная земля, ты мне дорога.
Высоко на сопках твоих стою
И песню во славу тебе пою.
Край родной — Карелия!
Ты мне навек судьбой дана.
Здравствуй в веках, моя страна,
Карелия!
Герои былин средь лесов и гор
Живут на земле нашей до сих пор.
Лейся, песня! Кантеле, звонче пой
Во имя карельской земли святой!
Край родной — Карелия!
Рун и былин напев живой.
Вижу рассвет лучистый твой,
Карелия!
Вижу рассвет лучезарный твой,
Карелия!
Kray rodnoy — Kareliya!
Drevnyaya mudraya zemlya.
Bratskikh plemyon odna sem'ya,
Kareliya!
Zvenite, ozyora, i poy, tayga!
Rodnaya zemlya, ty mne doroga.
Vysoko na sopkakh tvoikh stoyu
I pesnyu vo slavu tebe pojy.
Kray rodnoy — Kareliya!
Ty mne navek sud'boy dana.
Zdravstvuy v vekakh, moya strana,
Kareliya!
Geroi bylin sred' lesov i gor
Zhivut na zemle nashey do sikh por.
Leysya, pesnya! Kantele, zvonche poy
Vo imya karel'skoy zemli svyatoy!
Kray rodnoy — Kareliya!
Run u bylin napev zhivoy.
Vizhu rassvet luchisty tvoy,
Kareliya!
Vizhu rassvet luchezarny tvoy,
Kareliya!
Finnish English translation
Kotimaamme Karjala!
Ikivanha kaunis maa.
Veljeskansat yhteen saa
Karjala!
Nuo järvet ja vaarat ja hongikot-
ne huomisen kutsua kuunnelkoot!
Seisoin vaaran harjalla paljain päin
ja suljin syliini mitä näin.
Kotimaamme Karjala!
Ikivanha laulumaa.
Työllään etsii kunniaa
Karjala!
Ne urhot ja sankarit laulujen-
ne asuvat täällä entiselleen.
Soita, soma kantele, jatku, työ!
Soi, laulu, sydämen liekki, lyö.
Kotimaamme Karjala!
Rahvas rehti, ahkera
töin ja lauluin ikuistaa
Karjalaa!
Töin ja lauluin ylistää
Karjalaa!
Native land—Karelia!
Ancient and wise country.
One family of brother-nations,
Karelia!
Ring, lakes, and sing, taiga!
Native land, you are dear to me.
High on your mountains I stand
And a song to your glory I sing.
My native land—Karelia!
You have been given to me for all time by fate.
Live long through the centuries, my country,
Karelia!
The heroes of folk tales, amidst the woods and mountains
Still live on our land to this day.
Sing on, o song! Kantele, sing louder yet
In the name of the sacred Karelian land!
My native land—Karelia!
The lively melody of runes and fables.
I see your bright dawn,
Karelia!
I see your radiant dawn,
Karelia!
