Polska młodzież – Les Gars polonais

Polska młodzież niech nam żyje,
Nikt jej nie przesadzi,
Bo jej ręka dobrze bije,
Głowa dobrze radzi,
Pognębieni, zapomnieni,
Od całego świata,
Własnych baliśmy się cieni,
Brat unikał brata.
Niech do boju każdy biegnie,
Piękne tam skonanie,
Za jednego, który legnie,
Sto mścicieli wstanie.
Zawsze Polak miał nadzieję
W mocy Niebios Pana,
On w nas jedność, zgodę wleje,
A przy nas wygrana.

Polish Youth

Long live the Polish youth,
No one shall uproot her,
For her arm fights valiantly,
Her head counsels wisely,
Oppressed, forgotten,
By the entire world,
We were afraid of our own shadows,
Brother avoided brother.
Let us all go into battle,
Where death is glorious,
For every one who falls in battle,
A hundred avengers shall arise.
A Pole always puts his hope
In the Heavenly Father,
He will imbue us with unity and reconcile,
And the victory shall be ours.
