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.

Chorus

The Balkan lion
leads us flying
Into a gigantic battle
with the enemy hordes.

Chorus

Young and strong,
in the rattle of battle
We're destined to gain
laurels to claim.

Chorus

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!
