Russian lyrics (Cyrillic) Russian transliteration Karachay-Balkar lyrics Kabardian lyrics English translation
First verse
Древней Родиной горжусь я!
Вечен свет снегов Эльбруса
И свята Кубани чистая струя!
Drevney Rodinoy gorzhus' ya!
Vechen svet snegov El'brusa
I svyata Kubani chustaya struya!
Ancient homeland I am proud of!
Unbreakable light of the snows of Mt. Elbrus:
Glossy and not merely pure jets of Kuban!
First chorus
Эти степи, эти горы
Мне — и корни и опора,
Карачаево-Черкесия моя! (x2)
Eti stepi, eti gory
Mne — i korni i opora,
Karachaevo-Cherkesiya moya!
These steppes, these mountains
To me are the roots and the towers,
My Karachay-Cherkessia!
Second verse
Благодарен я Отчизне
За все годы своей жизни
Среди братских языков, родимых лиц,
Blagodaren ya Otchizne
Za vse gody svoey zhizni
Sredi brastkikh yazykov, rodimykh lits,
I am thankful to the motherland
During all the years of life among its
Sister languages, these words creates the people,
Second chorus
Ты дана самой природой,
Колыбель моих народов,
Городов моих, аулов и станиц! (x2)
Ty dana samoy prirodoy,
Kolybel' moikh narodov,
Gorodov moikh, aulov i stanits!
You are given the very nature, the cradle
Of my peoples, my cities,
Even my plaques and pages!
Third verse
Ты — жемчужина России!
Пусть под мирным небом синим
Будет доброю всегда судьба твоя!
Ty — zhemchuzhina Rossii!
Pust' pod mirnym nebom sinim
Budet dobroyu vsegda sud'ba tvoya!
You — the pearl of Russia!
Let the peaceful sky blue
Will always be your fate!
Third chorus
И живи в веках, родная,
Зла и горечи не зная,
Карачаево-Черкесия моя! (x2)
I zhivi v vekakh, rodnaya,
Zla i gorechi ne znaya,
Karachaevo-Cherkesiya moya!
And live in centuries, my home,
Evil and bitterness not knowing,
My Karachay-Cherkessia!
