SPRING IN OUR HOMELAND
Mùa Xuân Trên Quê Hương
Written by Hoài Mai (1975)
Video by Việt Hương and Minh Tuấn

Our homeland echoes joyous songs forever
Happy and excited for life with surging energy
The season has returned to our homeland
Hearing many lovely words
When our mountains and rivers unite
The good news travels everywhere.
 
The sound of Fatherland is immense
Reach all the mountains and rivers
New Year’s Eve is still warm
With the voice of Uncle Ho.
 
One united Viet Nam
North and South in peaceful harmony [1]
Oh, the truth is shining
Lighting up to enlighten our lives.
 
Overcoming all hardships
Healing all sore wounds [2]
Our hearts constantly burn
For Uncle Ho’s wishes.
 
Let’s build the country together
Make our lives better, as our dream
Filling our future
With great hope.
