Original Lyrics in Serbian

Боже правде, ти што спасе
од пропасти досад нас,
чуј и одсад наше гласе
и од сад нам буди спас.

Моћном руком води, брани
будућности српске брод,
Боже спаси, Боже брани,
Српске земље, српски род!

Сложи српску браћу драгу
на свак дичан славан рад,
сloga biće пораз врагу
а најјачи српству град.

Нек на српској блиста грани
братске слоге златан плод,
Боже спаси, Боже брани
Српске земље, српски род!

Нек на српско ведро чело
твог не падне гнева гром
Благослови Србу село поље,
поље, њиву, град

Кад наступе борбе дани
к’ победи му води ход
Боже спаси, Боже брани
Српске земље, српски род!

Из мрачнога сину гроба
српске славе нови сјај
настало је ново доба,
Нову срећу, Боже дај!

Отаџбину српску брани
пет вековне борбе плод
Боже спаси, Боже брани
молимо ти српски род!

English Translation of the Lyrics

Here is the Serbia national anthem English version. “Bože pravde” reflects the pride and unity of Serbia. Below is the English translation of the lyrics.

God of Justice, Thou who saved us
when in deepest bondage cast,
hear Thy Serbian children’s voices,
be our help as in the past.

With Thy mighty hand sustain us,
still our rugged pathway trace;
God, our hope, protect and cherish,
Serbian lands and Serbian race!

Bind in closest links our kindred
Teach the love that will not fail,
may the loathed fiend of discord
never in our ranks prevail.

Let the golden fruits of union
our young tree of freedom grace;
God, our Master, guide and prosper,
Serbian lands and Serbian race!

Lord! Avert from us Thy vengeance,
Thunder of Thy dreaded ire;
Bless each Serbian town and hamlet,
mountain, meadow, dark and dale.

When our hosts take the field
Girded be with Thine own might;
God, our Master, guide and prosper,
Serbian lands and Serbian race!

On our sepulcher of ages
Breaks the resurrection morn,
From the slough of direst slavery
Serbia shall anew be born.

Through five hundred years of durance
We have knelt before Thy face,
All our kin, O God, deliver,
Thus entreats the Serbian race!
