Ој свијетла мајска зоро
Мајко наша Црна Горо
Мајко наша Црна Горо

Синови смо твог стијења
Синови смо твог стијења
И чувари твог поштења

Волимо вас, брда тврда
И стравичне ваше кланце
Који никад не познаше
Срамотнога ропства ланце

Мајко наша Црна Горо

Док ловћенској нашој мисли
Наша слога даје крила,
Биће горда, биће славна
Домовина наша мила.

Ријека ће наших вала
Ускачући у два мора
Глас носити океану
Да је вјечна Црна Гора

Глас носити океану
Да је вјечна Црна Гора

Да је вјечна Црна Гора
