Original Lyrics in Korean

동해물과 백두산이 마르고 닳도록
하느님이 보우하사 우리나라 만세.
무궁화 삼천리 화려강산
대한 사람 대한으로 길이 보전하세

남산위에 저 소나무 철갑을 두른듯
바람서리 불변함은 우리기상일세.
무궁화 삼천리 화려강산
대한 사람 대한으로 길이 보전하세

가을하늘 공활한데 높고 구름없이
밝은달은 우리가슴 일편단심일세.
무궁화 삼천리 화려강산
대한 사람 대한으로 길이 보전하세

이 기상과 이 맘으로 충성을 다하여
괴로우나 즐거우나 나라사랑하세.
무궁화 삼천리 화려강산
대한 사람 대한으로 길이 보전하세

Until the East Sea’s waves are dry, (and)
Mt. Baekdusan worn away,
God watch o’er our land forever!
Our Korea shall live on!

With such a spirit as loyalty,
Let us love, come joy or sorrow,
A thousand miles of beautiful rivers and mountains,
The Great Korean people!

Rose of Sharon, thousand miles of ranges and river land!
Guarded by her people, ever may Korea stand!
