Mother Russia how are you sleeping  Middle winter cold winds blow
From the trees the snowflakes drifting
 Swirling round like ghosts in the snow

 Mother Russia poetry majestic
 Tells the time of a great empire

 Dance of the czars 
Hold up your heads 
Be proud of what you are
Now it has come
 Freedom at last
 Turning the tides of history 
And your past

 Mother Russia
 Dance of the czars 
Hold up your heads  Remember who you are
Can you release 
The anger the grief 
Can you be happy 
Now your people are free
