The text of the song with translation to English:
Lyrics in Serbian Cyrillic
У небо гледам пролазе векови,
К'о вечни пламен у нашим срцима
Опрости Боже све наше грехове
U nebo gledam prolaze vekovi,
K'o večni plamen u našim srcima
Oprosti Bože sve naše grehove
I'm looking at the sky, centuries are passing by,
Like an eternal flame burning in our hearts
Lord, forgive us of all of our sins.
