About:

Bože pravde (God of Justice) was written in 1872 as part of the music for the play Marko kazuje na kome je carstvo. It was adopted as national anthem of the Kingdom of Serbia in 1882, and as such was often popularly referred to as the Serbian National Prayer (Српског националног молитве).

The anthem remained in use until the foundation of Yugoslavia in 1918, in the aftermath of the First World War. After the collapse of Yugoslavia in the 1990s, Serbia started using the anthem again, with the readoption becoming official in 2006.

Lyrics:

Serbian:

Боже правде, ти што спасе
од пропасти досад нас,
чуј и одсад наше гласе
и од сад нам буди спас.

Моћном руком води, брани
будућности српске брод,
Боже спаси, Боже храни,
Боже спаси, Боже храни,
српске земље, српски род!
српске земље, српски род!

Serbian (transliterated):

Bože pravde, ti što spase
od propasti dosad nas,
čuj i odsad naše glase
i od sad nam budi spas.

Moćnom rukom vodi, brani
budućnosti srpske brod,
Bože spasi, Bože hrani,
Bože spasi, Bože hrani,
srpske zemlje, srpski rod!
srpske zemlje, srpski rod!

English:

God of Justice; Thou who saved us
when in deepest bondage cast,
Hear Thy Serbian children’s voices,
Be our help as in the past.

With Thy mighty hand sustain us,
Still our rugged pathway trace;
God, our hope; protect and cherish
God, our hope; protect and cherish
Serbian lands and Serbian race!
Serbian lands and Serbian race!
