Дугӕй дугмӕ нӕрӕд дӕ ном,
Бӕрзонддӕр кӕнӕд дӕ кад,
Дӕ ныфсӕй мах цӕрӕм ӕнгом,
Дӕ фӕрцы рухс у нӕ цард!

I
O dear Ossetia! For thy glory of thy name,
Erect we stand like a flambeau.
Of our love, good ol' cradle of fame,
Our joy and grief art thou!

By thine earth we swear to thee,
We honour vastly thy name,
With our might we serve thee,
Our fervor for thee came!

Chorus I:
O Great Khwytsaw! thy blessing and grace!
O give land of Ossetia happiness!

II
O Ossetian land! Thy past was darned,
Thou wert chased by baneful sins.
Yet through the truth of Farn,
Buried are thy hardships.

Thou hast always marched
Toward the light of life.
Thy hope hath not been crushed
During desolate times of strife.

Chorus II:
O Wastyrdzhi! thy blessing and grace!
O give Ossetian clan happiness!

III
Our forebears' pride, home of the Ossete!
Through one kindred, we're united.
In this world of sorrow through defeat,
Be not dispersed nor divided.

Through aeons may thy name echo,
Thy glory groweth with delight,
Together we live with thy hope aglow,
Thanks to thee, our lives shine bright!

Chorus III:
O cherished Farn! thy blessing and grace!
Blessed be our dear Ossetia!

Thine honour and glory!

  1. ^ South Ossetia's status is disputed. It considers itself to be an independent state, but this is recognised by only a few other countries. The Georgian government and most of the world's other states consider South Ossetia de jure a part of Georgia's territory.
