I love my ancient Assyrian nation and its aspirations and dreams,
As the lady from Alqosh, Zerineh, and Mardin.
Today I remember the god of the moon Nanna (Sin),
The father of Inanna the Queen.
Tomorrow is the Assyrian New Year,
The Enuma Elish in our hearts the ancient story so dear.
Day by day everything will become clear,
No more fear, no more fear!
Our people must be allowed to reconnect to their land and celebrate,
And we must stop and change the hate.
Love shall again in Assyria rule the hearts,
And the spirit and feelings will spread in all parts.
Assyrians are the treasures of Assyria,
"The work of His hands.”
One day our capacity as a nation will spread through the land,
And Assyria will be on the map again.
No one will say no to us then!
When we stand together,
We will rise as Assyrians forever.
Happy Assyrian New Year!
I wish I was there!
