San min chu I, wo tang so chung,

I kien min kuo, I chinta tung.

Tze erh to shih, wei min chien feng,

su yeh fei shieh, chu I shih tsung.

Shih ching shih yung, pi shing pi chung,

I hsin I teh, kuan cheh shih chung!

English Translation

Our aim shall be to found a free land.
World peace be our stand.
Lead on, comrades, vanguards ye are.
Hold fast your aim, by sun and star.
Be earnest and brave, your country to save.
One heart, one soul, one mind, one goal!
