God of Justice
by Jovan Đorđević, translated from Serbian by Wikisource

God of Justice, Thou who saved
Us heretofore from annihilation,
Hear also henceforth our voices,
And henceforth be our salvation.

With Thy mighty hand lead, defend
The future of the Serbian path;
God, save, God, protect
The Serbian lands, the Serbian race!

Unite dear Serbian brothers
In every proud glorious work;
Unity will be the devil's undoing
And the strongest fortress of Serbdom.

May on the Serbian branch shine forth
The golden fruit of brotherly unity;
God, save, God, protect
The Serbian lands, the Serbian race!

May upon the hot Serbian forehead
The thunder of Thy wrath never fall.
Bless for the Serb his village,
Field, meadow, city, and house!

When the days of battle come,
Lead his march to victory.
God, save, God, protect
The Serbian lands, the Serbian race!

From the dark deep grave
New Serbian glories shine forth.
A new era has begun;
God, give new happiness!

Protect the Serbian fatherland,
The fruit of five centuries of battle;
God, save, God, protect
The Serbian lands, the Serbian race!
