Hey, Slavs, there still lives the word of our grandfathers
While for the nations beats the heart of their sons!
There lives, there lives the Slavic spirit, it will live for ages!
In vain threatens the abyss of Hell, in vain the fire of thunder!
Written in 1834, this hymn of the pan-Slav movement existed in a number of linguistic variations. Amongst other things, it served as the battle song of the Czech Sokol movement and as the Yugoslav national anthem.
