In battle Ushakov was undefeated.
He’s justly called “Suvorov of the Seas.”
He brought glory to Russia on the seas.
His labors are a model for all sailors.
Oh heroes of our native fleet,
May our evil enemy tremble at the sight of you.
Wear with honor the order of Ushakov –
The symbol of the art of war, victory, and glory!
