Kazakstan National Hymn
We are the brave and proud people of Kazakstan.
Fortune has favored us, we survived with our land.
We survived in our fight for freedomís light;
Coming out of the dark tyrantís hell, tyrantís hell.

Freed falcon, fly up high in the sky.
Call the people to life with your cry.
Our heroes come out of the people,
Whose strength is in their great unity.

My great land, Kazak Steppe, you are a cradle to me;
Offering mutual respect, friendship, hospitality.
Love of our forefathers is the Kazak way,
Love of Klan, love of State, love of all Kazakstan.

We overcame the hardships along freedomís way;
Mother tongue, courage, customs, are with us to stay.
Generations of the future will remember this age:
Bright future, promised future, for which we set the stage.

Translation to English: Tamara Ibrahim and teachers at Kazak Business Lyceum
(School #24) Taldykorgan, Kazakstan 1994
Words to singable English verse: Ron Seibel, U.S. Peace Corps Kaz 1.
