Denes nad Makedonija (Macedonian: Денес Над Македонија, English translation: "Today Over Macedonia") is the national anthem of the Republic of Macedonia. It was composed by Todor Skalovski and the lyrics were written by Vlado Maleski in 1941.[1] It was performed as a popular song of the Macedonians during the time of Socialist Republic of Macedonia, a part of Yugoslavia.[3] Later the song was officially adopted to be the anthem of the independent Macedonia.[2][4]

Lyrics (Used By Socialist Rep. of Macedonia)[edit]

The anthem has four stanzas, but the second stanza was omitted from the national anthem in 1992.

Macedonian Transliteration English Translation

Денес над Македонија се раѓа,
ново сонце на слободата!
Македонците се борат,
за своите правдини!
Македонците се борат,
за своите правдини!

Не плачи Македонијo мајко мила,
Крени глава гордо, Високо,
Старо, младо, машко и женско,
На нозе се кренало!
Старо, младо, машко и женско,
На нозе се кренало!

Одново сега знамето се вее,
на Крушевската република!
Гоце Делчев, Питу Гули,
Даме Груев, Сандански!

Горите македонски шумно пеат,
нови песни, нови весници!
Македонија слободна,
слободно живее!
Македонија слободна,
слободно живее!

Denes nad Makedonija se raǵa,
novo sonce na slobodata!

Ne plači Makedonijo majko mila,
Kreni glava gordo, Visoko,
Staro, mlado, maško i žensko,
Na noze se krenalo!
Staro, mlado, maško i žensko,
Na noze se krenalo!

Odnovo sega znameto se vee,

Today over Macedonia, is being born
the new sun of liberty.
Macedonians are fighting,

Do not cry dear mother Macedonia,
Raise your head proudly high,
Old, young, men and women,
The legs revolted!
Old, young, men and women,
The legs revolted!

Now once again the flag stands
(that) of the Kruševo Republic
Gotse Delchev, Pitu Guli

The Forests of Macedonia are singing
new songs, new newspapers!
Macedonia is liberated
Lives in liberty!

Lives in liberty!
