In the English translation

That buried in the deep,A chain of precious stones

scattered on our land.Our language is a burning fire in the

midst of a people who

woke up from their death sleep without news

like the hero from fairy tales.Our language is a green leaf

The rustling of the eternal forests,

The calm ripple of the Dniestr hides

The candlesticks of the stars.Our language is a blessed language,

The language of the ancient sermons

That wept and sung

By the peasants in their home.

A treasure will rise up

that is buried in the deep,

A chain of precious stones

scattered on our land.
