Mer Hayrenik
National anthem of Armenia

"Mer Hayrenik" (Armenian script: "Մեր Հայրենիք"; English translation: "Our Fatherland") is the national anthem of Armenia. Adopted on July 1, 1991, it is based on the anthem of the Democratic Republic of Armenia (1918-1922), but with different lyrics.

The lyrics were written as a poem by poet Mikael Nalbandian (1829-1866) and later set to music by composer Barsegh Kanachyan (1885-1967).

Armenian

Մեր Հայրենիք, ազատ անկախ,
Որ ապրել է դարե դար
Իր որդիքը արդ կանչում է
Ազատ, անկախ Հայաստան։
Ահա եղբայր քեզ մի դրոշ,
Զոր իմ ձեռքով գործեցի
Գիշերները ես քուն չեղա,
Արտասուքով լվացի։: Նայիր նրան երեք գույնով,
Նվիրական մեկ նշան
Թող փողփողի թշնամու դեմ
Թող միշտ պանծա Հայաստան։
Ամենայն տեղ մահը մի է
Մարդ մի անգամ պիտ մեռնի,
Բայց երանի` որ յուր ազգի
Ազատության կզոհվի։

Our fatherland, free and independent,
That has lived for centuries
Calls on its children now,
Free independent Armenia.

Here brother, for you a flag,
That I made with my hands
At nights I did not sleep,
I washed it with tears.

Look at it, in three colours
It is our gifted symbol.
Let it shine against the enemy.
Let Armenia always be glorious.
(repeat previous two lines)

Everywhere death is the same
A man will only die once
But fortunate is he
who dies for the freedom of his nation.
(repeat previous two lines)
