 起来,不愿做奴隶的人们!
 把我们的血肉筑成我们新的长城!
 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。
 起来!起来!起来!
 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!

English Translation:

Arise! All who refuse to be slaves!
Let our flesh and blood become our new Great Wall!
As the Chinese nation faces its greatest peril,
All forcefully expend their last cries.
Arise! Arise! Arise!
Our million hearts beat as one,
Brave the enemy's fire, March on!
Brave the enemy's fire, March on!
March on! March on! On!
