Sai! Sa ist fairƕus faur uns
*******fairƕus þiudai unsarai
Sa 'st anahaims faur uns

O, insaiƕ þu mik
Þairh barnis augona

In farƕau saƕ ik anst,
Uswakja af stibnai soei ik ni gakunna,
Biþe astos tekand qiþjuns unsarans
Ist riqis batist hulistr faur uns

Original text written in Serbian by Milan Mladenović and Margita Stefanović, 1987

Lo! This is a world for us,
This is a world for all our people,
This is a home for us,
This is a home for our children

Look at me,
O, Look at me
Through the eyes of a child

In this world I see grace,
I am awakened by a voice I don't recognise
As the branches touch our bodies,
The darkness is a perfect shroud for us

Look at me,
O, Look at me
Through the eyes of a child

I hear — turn around!
I hear — stand!
I hear — turn around!
Absolve me then!
I hear — turn around!
I hear — stand!
I hear — turn around!
Don't go, don't go, no...

In all deaths
I saw a little of grace,
When we are at the end
Understand then, that this is the beginning

Look at me,
O, look at me
Through the eyes of a child


I hear — turn around!
I hear — stand!
I hear — turn around!
Absolve me then!
I hear — turn around!
I hear — stand!
I hear — turn around!
Forgive me then!

I hear — turn around!
I hear — stand!
I hear — turn around!
Absolve me then!
I hear — turn around!
I hear — stand!
I hear — turn around!
Don't go, don't go, no...
