Tape No. 10, side A, song no. 3

The Star of Freedom

In this home of our martyrs, there is love for Meena
In this Afghanistan of ours, there are cries of anguish

In this country invading armies have always been defeated
In this country the children of Malalai have always been victorious
This is the frontline for freedom, hear the roar of battle!

How adorable the martyrs! This is the martyrs' home
Aggressors are always beaten, this is the grave of the aggressor
What a riot of song here, from the throats of the songbirds of freedom!

The Star of Freedom shall rise, the clouds cannot hide it
Dawn shall break, no one can prevent it
The darkness shall be banished, the light of Tomorrow shall be here!
