Lyrics[edit]

Azerbaijani lyrics English translation[1][3]
Azerbaijan, Azerbaijan!
The glorious Homeland of a valorous descendant!
We are ready to die for you sententiously!
We are ready to plague for you sententiously! 
Live blissfully with your three – colored flag!
Live blissfully with your three – colored flag!
Thousands of martyrs had sacrificed for you, 
Your chest had become the site of wars!
Soldiers had passed you justice!
Each one became a hero!
You, become a flower garden, 
The sacrifice of our souls anytime for you!
Never –ending love for you
Have got a place in my heart!
In order to maintain your honor,
In order to elevate your flag, 
In order to maintain your honor,
The young are intended sententiously!
The glorious Homeland, the glorious Homeland!
Azerbaijan! Azerbaijan!
Azerbaijan! Azerbaijan!
