The anthem of the NKR

words by V. Hakobyan

music by A. Nasibyan


Free and independent Artsakh,

We have erected our home-fortress.

The history of our country,

We have secured by our blood. 


You are an unassailable fortress,

A holy peak, a noble name.

A blessing divine

We are made eternal through you. 


You, our light-giving homeland,

Land, gate of love to the Fatherland.

Live always in peace

Our old and new Karabakh. 


We are brave descendants of Haik

Like Mrav, Kirs and everlasting Tartar

With our temples in high mountains

Keep our country invincible.
