He speaks in our hearts, burning like the sun,
Words that will stand on the path of history.
Eyes flash with 20 million glances,
All the hopes of a nation.
Flowing through the veins of the nation like blood
That voice beats like a heart in every breast.
That voice wraps an arm of love around the nation,
And will dry the sweat of the yet unborn.
Like a steel wall breaking apart the wind
It will break through the gap of time,
It will burn in the furnaces of the factories
And engines will turn to the sound of it.
Yusuf Ziya ORTAÇ
