Altyn kün aspany,
Altyn dän dalasy,
Erlıktıñ dastany –

Ejelden er degen,
Dañqymyz şyqty ğoi,
Namysyn bermegen,
Qazağym myqty ğoi!

Qaiyrmasy:
Menıñ elım, menıñ elım,
Gülıñ bolyp egılemın,
Jyryñ bolyp tögılemın, elım!
Tuğan jerım menıñ — Qazaqstanym!

Ūrpaqqa jol aşqan,
Keñ baitaq jerım bar.
Bırlıgı jarasqan,

Алтын күн аспаны,
Алтын дән даласы,
Ерліктің дастаны –
Еліме қарашы!
Ежелден ер деген,
Даңқымыз шықты ғой,
Намысын бермеген,
Қазағым мықты ғой!

Менің елім, менің елім,
Гүлің болып егілемін,

Мәңгілік досындай.
Біздің ел бақытты,
Біздің ел осындай!

Солнца свет в небесах,
Урожай на полях,
Песнь о смелых сынах
Прославляют в веках!
Слава нашей земли
С давних пор на устах.
Как ты горд и силён,
Мой родной Казахстан!

Припев:
Край мой родной! Мой народ со мной!
В поле цветок, взращенный тобой.
Песня звенит на устах народа:
Родина — свобода — вечный Казахстан!

Все пути предо мной
Распахнул шар земной,
И сплочённый народ
В светлый путь нас зовёт.
Кровных уз и добра,
Счастья нового дня –
Ты, отчизна моя,
Всё дала мне сполна!

In the steppes seeds of gold.
Of legends brave and bold,
My great country behold!
From thine antiquity
Emerged our glory.
Our honour shall reign
Brave my Kazakhs remain!

Chorus:
My motherland, my motherland,
Like a flower upright I stand.
Of thee I sing, thee I proudly blazon!
O my native homeland — my Kazakhstan!

For aeons we've lasted
In the vast land I have.
Our folk united
In this free land I have.
Of new eras embraced,
Like an eternal friend.
Revered is our land,
Such is our homeland!

Sun of gold in the sky,
Grain of gold in the steppe.
Let us all celebrate —
Take a look at the steppe!
How spacious is this land,
Flowers bloom on the ground.
Grains are with toil sowed —
My Kazakhs are intrepid!

Chorus:
My motherland, my motherland,
As thy song I shall stream from thee,
As thy flower I shall bloom, oh homeland!
My native homeland — my Kazakhstan!

Around when I glance,
My heart with love filleth.
In this day I conform,
Behold my noble folk.
Our country — a vast land,
Our banners are raised.
In the wind they swayed,
In terme I rejoiced.

Chorus

There is a looming steppe,
There is placid bounty.
O look and gratify,
I have such a country.
Of new eras welcomed,
Like an age-old friend.
Blessed is our country,

Parodies[change | change source]

There is a parody version of the anthem—in an entirely different tune—which comes at the end of 2005 mockumentary film Borat. It is titled "O Kazakhstan". The actor who played Borat Sagdiyev, Sacha Baron Cohen, has been threatened with lawsuits by the Government of Kazakhstan after the execution (release) of the film.[9]

Playback incidents[change | change source]

In March 2012, the full Borat soundtrack was played at the International Shooting Grand Prix in Kuwait with Gold-winner Mariya Dmitriyenko.[10][11] Kazakh officials were angered by this incident and complained. A few weeks earlier, at a festival of a ski resort in Qostanaı, the first part of Ricky Martin's single "Livin' La Vida Loca" was played accidentally before it was immediately changed to "Meniń Qazaqstanym".[12]
