Original Lyrics in Croatian

Lijepa naša domovino,
Oj junačka zemljo mila,
Stare slave djedovino,
Da bi vazda sretna bila!

Mila, kan si nam slavna,
Mila si nam ti jedina,
Mila, kuda si nam ravna,
Mila, kuda si planina!

Teci Dravo, Savo teci,
Nit’ ti Dunav silu gubi,
Sinje more svijetu reci,
Da svoj narod Hrvat ljubi.

Dok mu njive sunce grije,
Dok mu hrašće bura vije,
Dok mu mrtve grobak krije,
Dok mu živo srce bije!

Our beautiful homeland,
Oh dear, heroic land,
Our fathers’ ancient glory,
May you always be happy!

Dear, you are our only glory,
Dear, you are our only one,
Dear, we love your plains,
Dear, we love your mountains!

Drava, Sava, keep on flowing,
Danube, do not lose your strength,
Deep blue sea, tell the world,
That a Croat loves his homeland.

While the sun warms his fields,
While the oak forests blow,
While his ancestors rest in peace,
While his living heart beats!
