KIM IL-SUNG 101 YEARS - MANSE!
Kim Il-Sung the hero gave Korea freedom through his magnificent leadership of the martyrs anti-colonial and nationalist cause against the Japanese imperialism. He created The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, or North Korea, an independent socialist nation carrying the legacy of ancient Korea through the way of Juche. In 1950, he sought to liberate all of Korea by leading the People's Army against the colonized and later Westernized and Christianized "South" Korea, occupied by US imperialism. China supported their Korean brother nation by sending a million volunteers, this specific song could be heard amongst the Korean and Chinese troops.
Kim Il-Sung died in 1994, he is the Eternal President of North Korea.
The Song of General Kim Il Sung was composed in 1948. The official lyrics are unknown to me, these are different versions:
Baekdu Mountains roll, stained with blood
Long Yalu River meanders, soaked in blood
Today Free Chosŏn's wreath of glories
Radiates its holy rays around the land
Vast snowy fields of Manchuria please tell me
Endless night deep in the Taiga please tell me
Immortal guerilla warrior, who is he?
Outstanding patriot, who is it?
Liberator of the working people, our savior dear
The great sun of the new Chosŏn, democratic and free.
For we all rally around the 20 Principles,
Throughout North Korea, spring has come at last!
Oh- Our brilliant and beloved General dear
Oh- Our exalted leader General Kim Il-sung
On Jangbaek mountains, there are bloodstains.
By Aprok river, there are bloodstains soaked
Those holy stains throw light over
the bouquet of free Korea today.
The snowstorm on Manju plain, tell a story!
The long night in the deep forest, tell a story!
Who is the immortal partisan?
Who is the peerless patriot?
He is the benefactor who released the labourers.
He is the great Sun for new democratic Korea.
All people gather to the 20-point political program.
In North Korea, New spring comes everywhere
Oh- what a sweet name, General Kim Il-sung!
Oh- what a glorious name, General Kim Il-sung!
Bright traces of blood on the crags of Jangbaek still gleam,
Still the Amnok carries along signs of blood in its stream.
Still do those hallowed traces shine resplendently
Over Korea ever flourishing and free.
Tell, blizzards that rage in the wild Manchurian plains,
Tell, you nights in forests deep where the silence reigns,
Who is the partisan whose deeds are unsurpassed?
Who is the patriot whose fame shall ever last?
He severed the chains of the masses, brought them liberty,
The sun of Korea today, democratic and free.
For the Twenty Points united we stand fast,
Over our fair homeland spring has come at last!
So dear to all our hearts is our General's glorious name,
Our own beloved Kim Il Sung of undying fame.
