Performed by:Mixed choir of Estonian TV and Radio, State Symphony Orchestra of Estonian SSRConductor K. Raudsepp.The music of the Estonian Soviet Socialist Republic's anthem was composed by Gustav Ernesaks, and the lyrics were written by Johannes Semper. It and the Karelo-Finnish SSR anthem were the only ones not to mention the Russian people. On 21 July 1956, the third stanza of the lyrics was changed to remove mentions of Joseph Stalin. This is the version presented here.Lyrics:J?? kestma, Kalevite kange rahvas,ja seisa kaljuna, me kodumaa!Ei vaibund kannatustes sinu vahvus,end l?bi sajanditest murdsid saja t?usid ?itsvaks sotsialismimaaks,et p?ikene su p?evadesse paista saaks.N??d huuga, tehas, vili, nurmel vooga,sirp, l?ika, alasile, haamer, l??!N?ukogu elu, tuksu v?imsa hooga,too ?nne rahvale, me tubli t??!Me Liidu rahvaste ja riike seassa, Eesti, sammu esimeste kindlas reas!Sa k?rgel leninlikku lippu kannadja julgelt kommunismi rada k?id.Partei me sammudele suuna annabja v?idult v?itudele viib ta meid.Ta kindlal juhtimisel kasva saja tugevaks ning kauniks saa, me kodumaa!Translation:Endure, heroic people of KalevsAnd stand as a rock, our homeland!Your courage did not subside in the sufferings,You broke yourself through the centuries,And arose a socialist country in blossom,For sun could shine in your days.Ye roar, factories, and corn-fields, wave;Reap, sickle, and beat out, hammer!May life of the Soviets throb in mighty swing;May happiness be brought to people by good labor!Among our Soviet nations and statesEstonia, march in the firm fore!You're bearing Lenin's banner high,You're boldly marching your Communist way.Our Party will lead our stepsAnd take us from victory to victory.Grow in her firm leadershipAnd become mighty and fair, our Homeland!
