Shumi Maritsa (Bulgarian: Шуми Марица) was the Bulgarian national anthem from 1886 until 1944. The original text was written by Nikola Zhivkov, a head teacher in Veles (now in the Republic of Macedonia). The lyrics were edited many times, most notably in 1912 by the poet Ivan Vazov who also composed the music.
Shumi Maritsa "Maritsa rushes" Lyrics:
Maritsa rushes, stained with blood, A widow wails, fiercely wounded.
Chorus: March, march, with our general, Let's fly into battle and crush the enemy!
Bulgarians, the whole world beholds you. Into a winning battle, let's gloriously go.
The Balkan lion leads us flying Into a gigantic battle with the enemy hordes.
Young and strong, in the rattle of battle We're destined to gain laurels to claim.
We're the nation, our pride, liberation, And dear fatherland till death shall defend.
Шуми Марица окрвавена, плаче вдовица луто ранета.
Рефрен: Марш, марш, со генералот наш! Во бој да летаме, душман да победиме!
