National anthem of North Korea

The lyrics of the National Anthem of North Korea

애국가

아침은 빛나라 이 강산
은금에 자원도 가득한
삼천리* 아름다운 내 조국
반만년** 오랜 력사에
찬란한 문화로 자라난
슬기론 인민의 이 영광
몸과 맘 다 바쳐 이 조선
길이 받드세

백두산기상을 다 안고
근로의 정신은 깃들어
진리로 뭉쳐진 억센 뜻
온 세계 앞서 나가리
솟는 힘 노도도 내밀어
인민의 뜻으로 선 나라
한없이 부강하는 이 조선
길이 빛내세

Aegukka

Ach’imŭn pinnara i kangsan
Ŭn’gŭme chawŏndo kadŭkhan
Samch’ŏlli* arŭmdaun nae choguk
Panmannyŏn** oraen ryŏksaë
Ch’allanhan munhwaro charanan
Sŭlgiron inminŭi i yŏnggwang
Momgwa mam ta pach’yŏ i Chosŏn
Kiri pattŭse

Paektusan’gisangŭl ta anko
Kŭlloŭi chŏngsinŭn kittŭrŏ
Chilliro mungch’yŏjin ŏksen ttŭt
On segye apsŏ nagari
Sonnŭn him nododo naemirŏ
Inminŭi ttŭsŭro sŏn nara
Hanŏpsi puganghanŭn i Chosŏn
Kiri pinnaese

The Patriotic Song

Land of the Morning calm,
full of sunshine, full of gold, silver,
This is the beautiful homeland
of three thousand li of our brave people.
Honored by its five thousand-year-old history,
the brilliance of its culture
May everyone devote themselves body and soul
to our beloved Korea!

The spirit of Paektu animates us
as much as the love of work,
Through united justice
we want to walk at the head of the world,
A people brimming with energy
who built their country,
May everyone to a Korea worthy
and prosperous forever be honored!

The National Anthem of North Korea was written by Pak Seyŏng and composed by Kim Wŏn’gyun.
