Throwing off the chains of dismal German captivity,
Again the Baltics live free!
Flourish again in your native, Soviet family,
Sisters! – Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania!
With the Red Army, the sun has returned
Driving away the gloom and horror of the black years.
From all of the great Motherland, greetings
To the Latvians, Lithuanians, and Estonians!
