Lyrics: K. Arsenev
Music: I. Krutoy
Glory to you, dear Shakhtar!
Never ever will betray you
The sky of football stars,
Where shines, like the Milky Way,
The light of your wins.
Green fields are for you, Shakhtar,
My fate forever lies with you, Shakhtar,
The medal of my love is for you, Shakhtar.
May shine in foreign cities
And permanently protect you from defeats
The bright star of football!
