My sunny free land, happiness and salvation to the people,
You are a loving companion to your friends!
Flourish forever with learning and creativity,
May your glory shine as long as the world exists!

Chorus:

These golden valleys -- dear Uzbekistan,
The courageous spirit of your ancestors is with you!
When the great power of the people raged,
(You were) the country that charmed the world!

The faith of an open-hearted Uzbek does not die out,
The young free generation is a strong wing for you!
Beacon of independence, guardian of peace,
Lover of truth, motherland, flourish forever!

These golden valleys -- dear Uzbekistan,
The courageous spirit of your ancestors is with you!
When the great power of the people raged,
(You were) the country that charmed the world!

Original Uzbek Text in Latin Script:
 

O'zbekiston Respublikasining Davlat Madhiyasi

Serquyosh, hur o'lkam, elga baxt, najot,
Sen o'zing do'stlarga yo'ldosh, mehribon!
Yashnagay to abad ilmu fan, ijod,
Shuhrating porlasin toki bor jahon!

Naqarot:

Oltin bu vodiylar -- jon O'zbekiston,
Ajdodlar mardona ruhi senga yor!
Ulug' xalq qudrati jo'sh urgan zamon,
Olamni mahliyo aylagan diyor!

Bag'ri keng o'zbekning o'chmas iymoni,
Erkin, yosh avlodlar senga zo'r qanot!
Istiqlol mash'ali, tinchlik posboni,
Haqsevar, ona yurt, mangu bo'l obod!

Naqarot:

Oltin bu vodiylar -- jon O'zbekiston,
Ajdodlar mardona ruhi senga yor!
Ulug' xalq qudrati jo'sh urgan zamon,
Olamni mahliyo aylagan diyor!
