Mongolian National Anthem

Дархан манай тусгаар улсДаяар монголын ариун голомтДалай их дээдсийн гэгээн үйлсДандаа энхжиж, үүрд мөнхөжнөХамаг дэлхийн шударга улстайХамтран нэгдсэн эвээ бэхжүүлжХатан зориг, бүхий л чадлаарааХайртай Монгол орноо мандуулъяӨндөр төрийн минь сүлд ивээжӨргөн түмний минь заяа түшижҮндэс язгуур, хэл соёлооҮрийн үрдээ өвлөн бадрааяЭрэлхэг Монголын золтой ардуудЭрх чөлөө жаргалыг эдлэвЖаргалын түлхүүр, хөгжлийн тулгуурЖавхлант манай орон мандтугай

Summary

Mongolia is a country imbued with the glimmer of a legendary past of epic proportions and a place full of immense possibilities today. Modern day Mongolia is a nation building a new place for itself in a world transformed by technology, global economics, large political changes and rapid regional development.

Despite massive industrial and technological development in nearby countries, Mongolia is maintaining much of its ancient traditional culture while steadily adapting to an enormously changed world. Once famous mainly for being the launch point of the colossal Mongol Empire and its founder Chinggis Khan, Mongolia is going through yet another remarkable transformation.

While the country is still finding its way through the difficult transition from a socialist system to a market economy.
