Everyone is forced to give out the final roar

We, all the people,  with one heart
Braving the foe's gunfire, march on
Braving the foe's gunfire, march on
March on!

歌唱二小放牛郎
Ode to Er Xiao, the Cowboy
By FANG Bing
Composer: JIE Fu  
Translator: CHENG Jiahui程家惠教授
 
Cattle’re still grazing on hillside,
But no sign of the cowboy it shows.
Not because of having fun, he loses the cattle,
Erxiao, the cowboy, away who goes.  
 
On a morning of September
Enemies are hunting a ravine for killing and looting,
Where our agencies are hiding
And also thousands of country folk.
 
At the critical moment,
The enemies come to the mountain pass.
Dizzily losing their way,
To be their guide, him they hold.
 
Erxiao obediently walks ahead,
Leading the enemy into our trap.
When gunshots ring out around,
They’ve been cheated, now they know.
 
The gun tip into Erxiao they poke,
Fling and kill him on a big stone.
Our Wang Erxiao, thirteen years old,
dies brave in the mountains in rows.
 
Cadres and villagers are safe
With him sleeping on the mountain cold.
On his little face a smile grows;
His blood reddens the blue sky in flow.
 
Over all villages the autumn wind blows,
Spreading the moving story far and wide.
Tears come into the eyes of all folk,
Who sing of Erxiao, the cowboy, with this ode.
 
大海啊故乡
Oh the Sea, My Hometown
By WANG Liping

Translated by ZHANG Zhizhong张智中教授
 
 
When a child mom told me
Oh the sea is my hometown
I was born here, and I grew up here
Oh the sea oh the sea is the place of my living
Sea wind blowing sea waves surging drifting about with me
Oh the sea oh the sea just like my mom
Wandering to the horizon always with me
When a child mom told me
Oh the sea is my hometown
I was born here, and I grew up here
Oh the sea oh the sea is the place of my living
Sea wind blowing sea waves surging drifting about with me
Oh the sea oh the sea just like my mom
Wandering to the horizon always with me
Oh the sea oh the sea just like my mom
Wandering to the horizon always with me
Oh the sea my hometown oh the sea my hometown
My hometown my hometown

我和我的祖国
My Motherland and I
By: ZHANG Li  
Tr. by ZHANG Junfeng张俊锋(高校教师)
Motherland I love you so
I cannot live without you
No matter where I go
From my heart an ode will flow
 
I sing of every mountain high
I sing of all rivers that flow
Curls of smoke fly
O’er a hamlet nigh
A rut I follow
 
My dearest motherland O
I’ll forever nestle in your heart’s core
Listening to your
Warm pulse and sto-
ries while I grow
 
Motherland to me O
Like the sea to a sea spray
The spray is the sea’s dear fay
The sea is the fay’s anchor
 
Whenever the sea’s smiles show
I am the dimple shallow
I always share the sea’s sorrow
And share her joy—O
 
My dearest motherland O
You are the sea that for e’er flows
Th’ unfailing source
Of clear waves blue
A sweet song in my soul
 
在希望的田野上
On the Field of Hope
By CHEN Xiaoguang
Music by SHI Guangnan
Tr. by WANG Changling王昌玲(高校教师)
 
 
On the field of hope’s our hometown.
Our homes new; cooking smoke curls beyond.
Our village’s cute; a stream murmurs along.
A stretch of winter wheat, a stretch of sorghum;
Ten miles of orchards, ten miles of lotus ponds!
Hey…
On the field we live forever on,
Make her prosperous, make her strong.
 
On the field of hopes our ideal.
Farmers sweat; rice shoots grow strong.  
Shepherds play the flute; cows moo.  
Some cast nets, some spin cotton,
Some sow seeds, some thrash grain.
Hey
On the field we work forever on,
Make her beautiful, make her young!
  
On the field of hopes our tomorrow.
Happy people live in the radiant sun.
Great labor changes life for the better.
Seniors raise cups, kids sport, having fun,
Lads play the lyre for lasses to chant.
Hey
On the field we strive forever on,
Make her happy, make her proud!
Make her happy, make her proud!
少年壮志不言愁
A great ambition never speaks of sorrow
By LIN Ruwei
Music by LEI Lei
Tr. by LI Qing and WANG Hui郦青 王晖
 
There’s laughter after pain.
There’s sunshine after rain.
Neither failure nor difficulty can change my mind.
A great ambition never speaks of sorrow.
Golden shield
Ardent yearning
Never give up any hope, try to make every endeavour
for the peace and prosperity of my motherland,
and the hope and hapiness of the people.
Despite all the rough and tough days,
I’ll keep moving on and on!
 
团结就是力量
Unity Means Power
Words by MU Hong
Music by LU Su
English Version by WU Weixiong吴伟雄教授
 
Unity means power;
Unity means power.
The power is iron, the power is steel;
But it is harder and stronger.
Firing at the Fascism, we fight!
We’ll wipe out all the systems not democratic.
Toward the sun, and freedom,and new China,
A country shining bright!
我和我的祖国
My Motherland and I
By: ZHANG Li  
English Version by XING Yi邢怡翻译家
 
 
I and my motherland, the tie nothing ever can unbind.
Wherever I go a song I’ll leave behind.
Each mountain I sing, every river I chant,
Cooking smokes, little hamlets, and a rut in the land.
My dearest motherland, to your bosom forever I bend.
You speak to me in such a tune dear mothers tend.

My motherland and I are like a sea and a spray
The spray’s a kid of the sea, and the sea my very mainstay.   
Whenever the sea smiles, a smiling vortex I’ll be.
I share with you your sorrows and your joviality.
My dearest motherland, forever ever you will run on,
ever gives me sweet waves and songs I’ve unsung.
My dearest motherland, forever ever you will run on,
ever gives me sweet waves and songs I’ve unsung.
ever gives me sweet waves and songs I’ve unsung.
 
我和我的祖国
My Home Country and I
Lyricist/ Zhang Li
Tune Composer/ Qin Yongcheng
Tr. Peter Jingcheng Xu许景诚博士
 
My home country and I
will never asunder go.
Wherever I roam and go,
there always streams a song yo.
I sing for mountains high and low.
I croon for rivers that flow.
Wisps of smoke grow;
small vills we know.
A trail’s seen aglow.
Oh, my dearest home country,
I cuddle up to your warm heart for aye.
The pulse you as a mother bestow
touches me slow.
 
My home country’s to me
as a sea’s to a billow.
Waves are the sons of the sea.
The sea is where billows glow.
Whenever the sea’s smiles show,
I am her whirlpool below.
I am sharing the sea’s sorrow,
enjoying all her glee.
Oh, my dearest home country,
You are the sea, ne’er dry you grow.
For good you throw  
blue waves I go
to sing solo.
la…la…
For good you throw
blue waves I go
to sing solo.

China catches my heart
No one can break us apart
No matter where I travel

Singing o’ hometown, big or small

Oh China how I love you
When I nestle in your arms feeling blue
You share with me the stories before
Make me cheerful
 
My motherland to me
Is what the sea to th’ spray
I am your flower-like spray
You are the sea that hugs me
Whenever you get to smile
You raise me up all the while
I share all your sorrows and joys
Share your strength and more

我和我的祖国
My motherland and me
By ZHANG Li
Music by QIN Yongcheng
Translator: ZHANG Qiong张琼教授

My motherland and me, we will never be apart.     
No matter where I travel, I’ll sing a song from my heart.
I sing of every mountain, I sing of every river,
Wisps of curl smoke, little hamlet, a rut in the road.
O My dearest motherland, I’ll always be close to your warm heart,
Listening to your motherly pulse and your story
 
My motherland and me, a great sea and a sea spray
Sprays are the kids of the sea, the sea a home of the spray
Whenever the sea is smiling, I am a dimple on face.
I am sharing all your sorrows, wave beats on the shore.
O My dearest motherland, you are the sea always be there,
Presenting me blue sea with waves, sweet songs I adore
Lala…
Presenting me blue sea with waves, sweet songs I adore

Ode to the Motherland
By WANG Shen
Music by WANG Shen
Translated by Rhapsodia 晚枫(旅加拿大翻译家)
 
*See the five-star red flag flying high
Loudly sing songs, songs of victory
Sing in praise of our beloved motherland
Setting off to be affluent and strong
Sing in praise of our beloved motherland
Setting off to be affluent and strong*
 
From the mountains, to the great plains
Yellow River and Yangtze rolling by
Oh, vast fields of beauty
Is our home and native land
Heroic people stand up straight now
Brotherhood strong as steel, unified as one        
We’re assiduous, we are brave, too
Strive for independence and liberty
Much hardship we’ve undergone
Before the liberation today
Oh we so love peace
We love our hometown
Invaders dare come, we will strike them down
The eastern sun, is rising up
The People’s Republic is newly up sprung
Our great leader MAO Zedong
Leads our ways forward on
Our life is getting fine, better every day
Our future shines all its bright rays
 
红梅赞
Ode to Red Plum Blossom
Lyrics By YAN Su  
Tr. JOHN ZHAO Yizhong赵宜忠(旅捷克翻译家)
 
On red crag red plum flowers bloom
Neath  feet is the ice and frost far away
The winter's cold is nothing to fear
A red heart opens to the sun, to the sun for aye
Red plum blossoms bloom
Each flower shines brightly
With heads high, thousands of flowers're in full bloom
Fragrance wafts beyond the cloudy sky clear
Waking up hundreds of flowers to bloom along
Singing aloud to celebrate the arrival of the New Year
On red crag red plum flowers bloom
Neath  feet is the ice and frost far away
The winter's cold is nothing to fear
A red heart opens to the sun, to the sun for aye
Red plum blossoms bloom
Each flower shines brightly
With heads high, thousands of flowers're in full bloom
Fragrance wafts beyond the cloudy sky clear
Waking up hundreds of flowers to bloom along
Singing aloud to celebrate the arrival of the New Year
Red plum blossoms bloom
Each flower shines brightly
With heads high, thousands of flowers're in full bloom
Fragrance wafts beyond the cloudy sky clear
Waking up hundreds of flowers to bloom along
Singing aloud to celebrate the arrival of the New Year

How happy flowers bloom in my mind
How cheery lovers sing with the wind
Flies far and far with the wings our heart
To seek for  sweet sights in our part
Ah
My dear love  we hug hand in hand
Marching hand in hand
All our life fills with the bright sunshine
Full of sunshine
Flowers on the same stems vie in bloom
Birds on wings match  to fly to higher for the boom
We’ll brave all the storms on the long marching land
We’ll give out the spring force to our motherland
Ah
My dear love we hug hand in hand
Marching hand in hand
All our life fills with the bright sunshine
Full of sunshine
