State Anthem of the Soviet Union  (1977) 
Sergey Mikhalkov and Gabriel El-Registan with music by Alexander Alexandrov, translated from Russian by Wikisource
The National Anthem of the Soviet Union (or Hymn, Russian: Гимн Советского Союза, Gimn Sovetskogo Soyuza) replaced the Internationale as the national anthem on March 15, 1944. The lyrics were written by Sergey Mikhalkov (born 1913) in collaboration with G. El-Registan (1899-1945) and the music was composed by Alexander Alexandrov (1883-1946). It was believed that Soviet soldiers would respond more to an anthem that was dedicated only to the Soviet Union rather than to a worldwide movement. The song was originally written as the Anthem of the Bolshevik Party with lyrics in the Alexandrine meter by Vasily Lebedev-Kumach in 1939.Excerpted from National Anthem of the Soviet Union on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Союз нерушимый республик свободных
Сплотила навеки Великая Русь!
Да здравствует созданный волей народов
Единый, могучий Советский Союз!
Славься, Отечество наше свободное,
Дружбы народов надёжный оплот!
Партия Ленина — сила народная
Нас к торжеству коммунизма ведёт!
Сквозь грозы сияло нам солнце свободы,
И Ленин великий нам путь озарил:
На правое дело он поднял народы,
На труд и на подвиги нас вдохновил!
Славься, Отечество наше свободное,
Дружбы народов надёжный оплот!
Партия Ленина — сила народная
Нас к торжеству коммунизма ведёт!
В победе бессмертных идей коммунизма
Мы видим грядущее нашей страны,
И Красному знамени славной Отчизны
Мы будем всегда беззаветно верны!
Славься, Отечество наше свободное,
Дружбы народов надёжный оплот!
Партия Ленина — сила народная
Нас к торжеству коммунизма ведёт!

Translation

An unbreakable union of free republics,
Great Russia has united forever!
Long live the created-by-the-will-of-the-peoples,
The united, the mighty Soviet Union.
Glory to our free Fatherland,
The stronghold of the friendship of the peoples!
The Party of Lenin is the power of the people,
It leads us to the triumph of Communism.
Through storms the sun of freedom shone to us,
And the great Lenin lighted us the way.
He raised peoples to the right cause,
He inspired us to labor and to acts of heroism.
Glory to our free Fatherland,
The stronghold of the friendship of the peoples!
The Party of Lenin is the power of the people,
It leads us to the triumph of Communism.
In the victory of the immortal ideas of Communism
We see the future of our country,
And to the Red banner of our glorious Fatherland
We shall always be selflessly true.
Glory to our free Fatherland,
The stronghold of the friendship of the peoples!
The Party of Lenin is the power of the people,
It leads us to the triumph of Communism.
