In Serbian language
|Oj svijetla majska zoro
Majko naša Crna Goro
Sinovi smo tvog stijenja
I čuvari tvog poštenjaVolimo vas, brda tvrda,
I stravične vaše klance
Koji nikad ne poznaše
Sramotnoga ropstva lance.Dok lovćenskoj našoj misli
Naša sloga daje krila,
Bit će gorda, bit će slavna
Domovina naša mila.
Rijeka će naših vala,
Uskačući u dva mora,
Glas nositi okeanu,
Da je vječna Crna Gora.
In the English translation
|Oh, you bright dawn in May,
Our mother Montenegro,
We are sons of your rocks,
And guardians of your honesty.
We love you, hard mountains,
and your dreaded mountain ranges,
which have never known the
chains of shameful slavery.
While our Lovćen's sense
gives wings to Our unity,
Will be proud, will be famous
Our beloved homeland.
The river from our shores,
Jumped into two seas,
Will carry the voice to the ocean,
That Montenegro is eternal.
