REPUBLIC OF TURKEY MINISTRY OF CULTURE AND TOURISM

Atatürk / (Hasan Ali YÜCEL)

It is he
Who saved the Turk from death,
It is he
Who gave the Turk back his identity.

The army he built
Threw back the enemy,
It is he
Who created the nation and the land.

His aim
Is the Turk’s desire,
His great heart
A homeland for the Turk.

With his soul
He gave us this country and
The republic
As a gift to us.

You are our father,
We take our name from you.
He who believes in you
Follows in your footsteps.

Let my country march on,
Let Turkishness grow.
You are Ataturk
Oh! Great Leader!

Hasan Ali YÜCEL
