Lưu Hữu Phước, a well-known Vietnamese communist and songwriter who lived from 1921 to 1989, wrote both the lyrics and composed the music to "Liberate the South". Phước also wrote the national anthem of South Vietnam beforehand, although this was before he became a communist.

Vùng lên! Nhân dân miền Nam anh hùng!
To liberate the South, we decided to advance,
Arise! Ye brave people of the South!
