Серкуёш хур улкам, элга бахт, нажот, 
Сен узинг дустларга йулдош, мехрибон! 
Яшнагай то абад илму фан, ижод, 
Шухратинг порласин токи бор жахон! 

Олтин бу водийлар - жон Узбекистон, 
Аждодлар мардона рухи сенга ёр! 
Улуг халк кудрати жуш урган замон, 
Оламни махлиё айлаган диёр! 

Багри кенг узбекнинг учмас иймони, 
Эркин, ёш авлодлар сенга зур канот! 
Истиклол машъали, тинчлик посбони, 
Хаксевар, она юрт, мангу бул обод! 

Олтин бу водийлар - жон Узбекистон, 
Аждодлар мардона рухи сенга ёр! 
Улуг халк кудрати жуш урган замон, 
Оламни махлиё айлаган диёр!
