Harach Nahadag Midi

This song was the march of the Armenina volunteers (Gamavors). These units served with the Russian Army against the Turks in World War I. After the Russian Revolution of 1917, the Russians broke ranks and went home. This left tens of thousands of Armenian troops to defend a front previously defended by ten times that number. Despite these adverse conditions, the volunteers stopped the Turks and allowed the creation of the Armenian Republic on May 28, 1918. This song is also the anthem of the A.Y.F.-Y.O.A.R.F.

Forward, immortals of a martyred race,
Armor of six centuries of unforgettable vengeance,
Upon the far mountaintops of our fatherland,
Let us go to plant the tri-colored flag.

Giant of dedication,
Fiery winged fleet,
Volunteer army,
Forward, forward firmly,
Forward unwaveringly,
Towards victory, victory.

The black blood of the evil ones irrigated our soil,
The exiled Armenian renewed his life,
Yesterday chained, today free,
Resurrected nobly from the obscure tomb.

Giant of dedication,
Fiery winged fleet,
Volunteer Army,
Forward, forward firmly,
Forward unwaveringly,
Towards victory, victory!

Harach, nahadag tzeghee anmahner,
Vetz taroo anmor vrezhee zurahner,
Gadarn hayrenee leratz herakooyn,
Yertank gotoghel troshagn yerakooyn.

Hsgah nveerman,
Dormeegh huratev,
Gamavor panag.
Harach, harach ansasan,
Harach antetev,
Tebee haghtanag, haghtanag.

Vadeen sev arun mer hogh voroketz,
Darakeer hayn eer gyankuh noroketz,
Yereg shghtayvadz, aysor eenknavar,
Haryal vehoren tampanen khavar.

Hsgah nveerman,
Dormeegh huratev,
Gamavor panag,
Harach, harach ansasan,
Harach antetev,
Tebee haghtanag, haghtanag.
