I am trying ahrd to find the name of this anthem, but so far i have found nothing apart from a sentance i translated into english: "The So-called Anthem of Estonian Soviet Socialist Republic". - fonzy

Maybe it would be good to translate the lyrics to english, from one of the languages already available.... Also, maybe a note on the different langauges should be added: was it always sung in estonian, or most often i russian? Was it ever sung in finnish? Are the translations of the song into russian and finnish "official" one's? --Konstantin 16:45, 19 Jun 2005 (UTC)

This Russian translation seems to be official (official version certainly did exist), it is singable and has rhymes as well (translating a poem from Estonian to Russian is certainly not a piece of cake). The English translation here is hardly the optimal one, I'll refine it when I have more time.Constanz - Talk 14:13, 11 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Finnish lyrics[edit]

I removed the Finnish lyrics because they were certainly not official (probably copied from some Finnish website). Laur 30 June 2005 18:14 (UTC)

I've composed a new no-socialist version[edit]

I've composed a new no-socialist version:


Endure, the brave people of Baltic sea
And stand as a rock, our homeland!
Your courage did not subside in the sufferings,
You broke yourself through the centuries,
And arose a democratic country in world,
For Sun could shine in your days.

Oh Lord, our Father, King of the Kings!
Protect our people for ever and ever!
Make everybody happy in Europe –
The hope in You will bring happiness to us.
We all, people of the independent country, believe in You –
Estonia, step in order with your sons.

You're bearing the sacred Nicholas banner,
You're going forward your glorious way.
Our hope is always with you –
It leads you the way of victories.
Grow, Motherland, on the great way,
Every day become more beautiful and stronger

This is not research, but it is most definitely original. Does Wikipedia have rules against original poetry? ΔιγουρενΕμπρος! 06:28, 15 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wrong date (year) marking different versions[edit]


As Im not registered user, I kindly ask if someone with more experience can change the year, when second version of the anthem was implemented. It was on 1956, three years after Stalin's death), not 1978, as english version states. You can check estonian or russian version, where are shown the correct date.

Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:24, 16 October 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Clusivity of Lyrics[edit]

I was directed here from the edit war, so I guess I'll state my case, seeing as there is no discussion already existing for this topic. Most to all of the other articles for the Anthems of the SSRs include lyrics in standard TOCcolors format, and I honestly see no reason why they shouldn't be included in general. Per the relevant discussion on Talk:Anthem of the Armenian Soviet Socialist Republic, it has been determined that WP:NOTLYRICS is not fully applicable to these such articles. With the permission of editors, I would like to restore the lyrics on the article, or at least to some degree; what say you? -User:Учхљёная (talk,philosophy,edits). 15:06, 14 June 2018 (UTC).

What I reacted to in the first place was an edit by this user with a misleading edit summary, which lead me to check the user's other edits. I do not as such care much about national anthems or lyrics. However, consensus - if there is one - is not include; it is that properly sourced lyrics can be included if there are no copyright issues. Russian translations are irrelevant (and if not, they need proper sources and clear indication as to why they are relevant); transcriptions into latin script and literal (not poetic) translations of the original into English are encouraged whenever lyrics are included, but may raise additional source and copyright issues. So: Do not re-add lyrics unless properly sourced, and do not re-add Russian translation unless relevance is made clear.-- (talk) 15:47, 14 June 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
