Words by ANTUN MIHANOVI (1796-1861)

 

 

Lijepa naa domovino,

Oj junaka zemljo mila,

Stare slave dje dovino,

Da bi va zda sretna bila!

Mila, kano si nam slavna,

Mila si nam ti jedina.

Mila, kuda si nam ravna,

Mila, kuda si planina!

 

 

Te c Dravo, Savo teci,

Nit' ti Dunav silu gubi,

Sinje more svijetu reci,

Da svoj narod Hrvat ljubi.

Dok mu njive sunce grije,

Dok mu hrac bura vije,

Dok mu mrtve grobak krije,

Dok mu ivo srce bije!

 

TRANSLATION

Our beautiful homeland,

Oh dear, heroic land,

Fatherland of ancient glory,

May you always be happy!

Dear, as much as you are glorious,

Only you are dear to us.

Dear, where your land is flat,

Dear, where it is mountainous.

 

 

Flow Drava, Sava flow,

Nor you, Danube, lose your power,

Azuresea, tell to the world

That a Croat loves his nation.

As long as sun warms his plougned land,

As long as storms lash his oak trees,

As long as the grave hides his dead,

As long as his living heart beats!
