The native land, the golden cradle!
If only my soul is not singing like a panpipe,
Whenever I laid as stone at your sands,
Can it be true would have silence me?
Can it be true speechless?

How do you spacious, oh the land, how great!
Above each trail of yours stood centuries.
I am happy to have been born in your wilderness steppes,
But even pain in your steppes - somehow is easy.
Is your breeze is not from my only breath?

With your spaciousness my spirit feels the kinship.
There is nothing you have not regretted for me,
And I, my dear, I do not regret anything.
Oh sweet land! 
About you dreams your bard.

When I can not see your native valleys,
That seemed to wither for me, like I'm getting decrepit old ...
I am your singer!
 I am your protector. 
I'm your son.
