Lyrics:

Serquyosh hur ulkam, elga baxt, najot,
Sen o‘zing do‘stlarga yo‘ldosh, mehribon!
Yashnagay to abad ilmu fan, ijod,
Shuhrating porlasin toki bor jaxon!

Oltin bu vodiylar — jon O‘zbekiston,
Ajdodlar mardona ruhi senga yor!
Ulug‘ xalq qudrati jo‘sh urgan zamon,
Olamni mahliyo aylagan diyor!

Bag‘ri keng o‘zbekning o‘chmas iymoni,
Erkin, yosh avlodlar senga zo‘r qanot!
Istiqlol mash’ali, tinchlik posboni,
Haqsevar, ona yurt, mangu bo‘l obod!

Oltin bu vodiylar — jon O‘zbekiston,
Ajdodlar mardona ruhi senga yor!
Ulug‘ xalq qudrati jo‘sh urgan zamon,
Olamni mahliyo aylagan diyor!
