Poem: “My Native Land” by Dashdorjiin Natsagdorj

The fertile virgin-lands between Altai and Khangai
Lands of our eternal destiny where ancestors lie
Land grown mellow under the golden rays of the sun
Land grown eternal under the silver moon.

This is my native land
Mongolia the beautiful!
Homeland of our ancestors since the day of the Hsiung-nu
Land of great might in the days of the Blue Mongols

Land we become more accustomed to every passing year
Land where now the crimson flags flutter
This is my native land
Mongolia the beautiful!

Beloved country of us all who were born and die here
The enemy who dares invade our soil shall perish
Let us build our democratic (revolutionary) state on the land ordained
Then let march head high toward the brave future new world.
This is my native land
Mongolia the beautiful.
