Echo of our youthChords
The corn is glistening around us,
All shining in the gentle summer rain;
As we go forward, we go ever, ever forward
Into the distance, never ending of the plain.
Then echo, then echo, all boundless lies the world,
Then echo, then echo, all boundless lies the world.
We children of a joyful Motherland
Come marching from the distant field and town
With happy footsteps that are ringing thro' the valleys
We'll bear our young and newborn freedom bravely on.
Then echo, then echo, we'll bear our freedom on,
Then echo, then echo, we'll bear our freedom on.
This life of ours can have not limit,
No limit to our striving and our love;
There is no ending to the struggle and the progress,
And to the power of our own heroic youth.
It rings, it rings the echo of our youth,
It rings, it rings the echo of our youth.
