中华民族到了最危险的时候,每 个人被迫着发出最后的吼声。


我们万众一 心, 冒着敌人的炮火, 前进!

冒着敌人的炮火, 前进!前进!前进!进!

Zhōnghuá mínzú dàole zùi wēixiǎnde shíhòu, měigerén bèi pòzhe fāchū zùihòude hǒushēng.

Arise! People who don’t want to be slaves! 

With our very flesh and blood, let us build our new Great Wall.

When the people of China are in the most dangerous time, everyone will be forced to shout a last shout.

Arise! Arise! Arise!

We’re millions with one mind. Let’s brave the enemy’s gunfire. March on!

Brave the enemy’s gunfire. March on! March on! March, March on!
