Transcript of SLOVAKIA

SLOVAKIA
Nad Tatrou sa blýska,
hromy divo bijú.
Zastavme ich bratia,
veď sa ony stratia,
Slováci ožijú.

To Slovensko naše
posiaľ tvrdo spalo,
ale blesky hromu
vzbudzujú ho k tomu
aby sa prebralo.
Above Tatra bolts of lightning, thunderstorm pounds wildly.
Let's stop them brothers,
they will be lost,
Slovaks will rise alive.

That Slovakia of ours
was sleeping deeply until now.
But thunder's lightnings
are actuating it
to the revival.

Ja sladké túžby, túžby po kráse
spievam peknotou nadšený,
a v tomto duše mojej ohlase
svet môj je celý zavrený;
z výsosti Tatier ona mi svieti,
ona mi z ohňov nebeských letí,
ona mi svety pohýna;
ona mi kýva zo sto životov:
No centrom, živlom, nebom, jednotou
krás mojich moja Marína!
Andrej Sládkovič: Marína
