Your Name is Motherland

Tell me, are you bright pattern of paradise
The beauty of the world embodied in you.
You are the love grass, which blinds us
Your name reached the skies, Motherland!

Allah loving scholars were born
The lots wrote and they wrote letters.
Bobur also lived crying missing you
Your name reached the skies, Motherland!

When we hear your name in other countries
We gather again, like one family.
Our posterity will also live in your embrace
Your name reached the skies, Motherland!

And you taught “Kurkhon” to Firogi
Navoi wrote “Khamsa”
because of love to you
The poor also lived as a king
Your name reached the skies, Motherland!

Poet also is your happiness, Motherland
Write seething, don’t tire of praising her
You are the beginning of happy future
Your name reached the skies, Motherland!
