The song was composed in 1912, as Russia was awash in rumors about the impending new Balkan War, in which the Slavs would be pitted against the Ottoman Turks, and Orthodox Christianity against Islam.

The melody gained popularity in Russia and adjoining countries during the World War I, when the Russian soldiers left their homes accompanied by this music. It was also used as an unofficial anthem of Admiral Kolchak's White Army.

The word "Slavic" in the title of the march, which otherwise invokes only Russia, is a tribute as much to the pan-Slavist ideology of the preceding century as to its transformation into Russian nationalism on the eve of WWI.


Прощание славянки

Встань за Веру, Русская Земля!

Много песен мы в сердце сложили,
Воспевая родные поля.
Беззаветно тебя мы любили,
Святорусская наша земля.

Высоко ты главу поднимала -
Словно солнце твой лик воссиял.
Но ты жертвою подлости стала -
Тех, кто предал тебя и продал!

И снова в поход!
Труба нас зовет!
Мы вновь встанем в строй
И все пойдем в священный бой.
Встань за Веру, Русская Земля!

Ждет победы России святыня.
Отзовись, православная рать!
Где Илья твой и где твой Добрыня?
Сыновей кличет Родина-мать.


Все мы - дети великой Державы,
Все мы помним заветы отцов
Ради Знамени, Чести и Славы
Не жалей ни себя, ни врагов.

Встань, Россия, из рабского плена,
Дух победы звоет: в бой, пора!
Подними боевые знамена
Ради Правды, Красы и Добра!



Farewell of a Slavic Woman

Arise, Russian Land, defend your Faith!

We have composed many a song in our heart,
Glorifying the native fields.
We've loved you no matter what,
You, our holy Russian land.

You've raised your head high,
You face has been shining like the sun.
You've become a victim of betrayal --
by those who have cheated and sold you!

Again, march ahead!
Again, the bugle calls!
Again, we'll join the ranks
And all march into the holy battle.
Arise, Russian Land, defend the faith!

Russia's holiness awaits victory.
Respond, the Orthodox host!
Where is your Ilya Muromets,
Where is Dobrynia?
The mother is summoning her sons.


We all are children of a Great Power,
We all remember the forefathers' commandment:
For the sake of the Flag, Honor, Glory,
Pity neither yourself not the foe.

Arise, Russia, from your prison of slavery,
Victory's spirit is calls: time to do battle!
Rise your battle flags
For Truth, Beauty, and Good.
