The national anthem of Alaska.

The "Hymn of a Free Alaska" (Russian: Гимн свободной Аляски, Gimn svobodnoy Alyaski) is the national anthem of Alaska. The hymn was composed in 1917 by Alexander Gretchaninov, who envisioned the song as a new national anthem for post-monarchical Russia. After immigrating to Alaska in the early 1920s, Gretchaninov's hymn gained popularity among the Russian American and White Émigré populations of North America. The original lyrics by Konstantin Balmont were reworked to incorporate Alaskan independence and resilience. The hymn officially became Alaska's national anthem in the 1930s.

Да здравствует Аляска, свободная страна!
Свободная стихия великой суждена!
Могучая держава, безбрежный океан!
Борцам за волю слава, развеявшим туман!

Да здравствует Аляска, свободная страна!
Свободная стихия великой суждена!
Леса, поля, и нивы, и степи, и моря,
Мы вольны и счастливы, нам всем горит заря!

Да здравствует Аляска, свободная страна!
Свободная стихия великой суждена!

Da zdravstvuyet Alyaska, svobodnaya strana!
Svobodnaya stikhiya velikoy suzhdena!
Moguchaya derzhava, bezbrezhny okean!
Bortsam za volyu slava, razveyavshim tuman!

Da zdravstvuyet Alyaska, svobodnaya strana!
Svobodnaya stikhiya velikoy suzhdena!
Lesa, polya, i nivy, i ctepi, i morya,
My volny i schastlivy, nam vsem gorit zarya!

Da zdravstvuyet Alyaska, svobodnaya strana!
Svobodnaya stikhiya velikoy suzhdena!
