LYRICS:
Σε γνωρίζω από την κόψη
Του σπαθιού την τρομερή,
Σε γνωρίζω από την όψη,
Που με βιά μετράει τη γη.

Απ’ τα κόκκαλα βγαλμένη
Των Ελλήνων τα ιερά,
Και σαν πρώτα ανδρειωμένη,
Χαίρε, ω χαίρε, ελευθεριά!

ROMAN ALPHABET:
Se gnorízo apó tin cópsi
Tu spathjú tin tromerí,
Se gnorízo apó tin ópsi,
Pu me vjá metrái ti gi.

Ap’ ta cóccala vgalméni
Ton Ellínon ta jerá,
Cæ san próta andrioméni,
Chǽre, o chǽre, eleftherjá!

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:
I shall always recognize you
by the dreadful sword you hold,
as the Earth with searching vision
you survey with spirit bold.

From the Greeks of old whose dying
brought to life and spirit free,
now with ancient valor rising
Let us hail you, oh Liberty!
