Description: The coat of arms of the serf is broken by the hand of the proletarian
But the shadow lay around the Soviet coat of arms
With an awful dismay, with the legacy of tzar’s power,
We still have a fierce struggle.

Her fancies - and COLD evil and Hungry,
And crawling up on us the creeping PLAGUE;
The armor against them is a steel working hammer
And, a friend of a tried peasant, an ax.

Steam, the factory! Ride, steam locomotives!
On the anvil - hey! - Bold, hammer, beat!
BREAKS the threat that has shaken us is not terrible,
Comrade, tighten up! Comrade, do not be shy!

In the dense forest the ax rings with a cheerful ringing
And, hearing the cheerful squeak of loaded sledges,
A moan of a death-throat moans a groan:
- "Oh, LABOR, you won! You are stronger than all enemies! ".

The mighty gate is wrapped with steel cables.
LABOR is making woods, rattling, knocking, ringing.
Unheard of beauty sparkles a new city
In the sunshine of the jubilant day.

And plowman, a city with an abundance of gifted
After the last pood, separated from him,
At the sight of corpulent fields, contentment illuminated,
The Communist bless work!
