National Anthem of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The national anthem of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia (Serbo-Croatian: Химна Краљевине Југославије, romanized: Himna Kraljevine Jugoslavije) was created in December 1918 from the national anthems of Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia. It was replaced by "Hey, Slavs" in 1941.

Боже правде, ти што спасе
од пропасти досад нас,
чуј и од сад наше гласе
и од сад нам буди спас!

God of justice, save thy people,
Lord, protect us day by day;
Hear our voices supplicating,
Grant salvation now, we pray!

Lijepa naša domovino,
Oj junačka zemljo mila,
Stare slave djedovino,
Da bi vazda sretna bila!

Naprej zastava slave,
Na boj junaška kri!
Za blagor očetnjave
Naj puška govori!

Onward, banner of glory,
to battle, heroic blood!
for the sake of the motherland
let the rifles sound!

Advance with banners waving!
Fight on!" our heroes cry.
To save our country's glory
The roaring guns reply!

Bože spasi, Bože hrani
Našeg Kralja i naš rod!
Kralja Petra, Bože hrani,
Moli ti se sav naš rod!

God protect our noble monarch,
God watch over great and small,
God sustain and guide King Peter,
God defend and keep us all!
