Playlist of Sharing Mongol Folk Songs

Chinggis Khaanii Magtaal was composed in 1993, by Morin khuurch Munkhbat Jamsranjav.
The lyrics were written by Yeruulch Magtaalch Tserendorj Tseyen.

Хөх тэнгэрээс заяатай
Хөдөө аралд мэндэлсэн
Хөх монголоо нэгтгээд
Хөвчин дэлхийд дуурьсгав аа

Эрэлхэг монгол Чингис
Эзэнбогд Чингис ээ

Гал мэсний дундаа
Ган болд шиг хаттай
Газар дэлхий дээрээ
Гарьд шувуу шиг хүчтэй

Эрэлхэг монгол Чингис
Эзэнбогд Чингис ээ

Дээд тэнгэрээс заяатай
Дэлхийн хагасийг дагуулсан
Сүр хүчээ нэгтгээд
Сүлд хийморио бадраав аа

Эрэлхэг монгол Чингис
Эзэнбогд Чингис ээ

Hoh tengerees zayatai

Deed tengerees zayatai
Delhiin hagasiig daguulsan
Sur huchee negtgeed
Suld hiimorio badraav aa

Erelheg mongol Chinggis
Ezen bogd Chinggis ee

Below the English translation proposed by Bujee

Destined by the eternal blue sky,
Born in the steppe,
Unifying blue-skied Mongolia,
His name resounds around the world,

The courageous Mongol Chinggis,
The sublime lord Chinggis.

Rising from fire and weapons,
With a mind as strong as steel,
Roaming this earth,
Powerful as a griffin,

The courageous Mongol Chinggis,
The sublime lord Chinggis.

Blessed by the sky above,
Conquering half of the world,
Uniting strength and power,
Prospering in good fortune,

The courageous Mongol Chinggis,
The sublime lord Chinggis.
