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 Karabagh.
We are brave descendants of Haik
Like Mrav, Kirs and everlasting Tartar
With our temples in high mountains
Keep our country invincible.
