I Рефрен II

Гордо чекориме со тебе ние,

Гоце учителу наш.

Делото твое нас нѐ води

Кон светлината,

Делото твое нас нѐ води

Кон иднината.

Знаење, мудрост ни даваш

За светла иднина,

Вечно и гордо зрачи

Универзитету наш.

Твојата укост гордост е наша,

Го свети патот наш.

Мислата твоја сила е вечна

Темелот силен наш,

Мислата твоја нас нѐ води

Кон иднината.


Gaudeamus igitur (Latin)


Gaudeamus igitur

Iuvenes dum sumus.

Post iucundam iuventutem

Post molestam senectutem

Nos habebit humus.


Ubi sunt qui ante nos

In mundo fuere?

Vadite ad superos

Transite in inferos

Hos si vis videre.


Vita nostra brevis est

Brevi finietur.

Venit mors velociter

Rapit nos atrociter

Nemini parcetur.


Vivat academia!

Vivant professores!

Vivat membrum quodlibet;

Vivant membra quaelibet;

Semper sint in flore. 


Vivant omnes virgines

Faciles, formosae.

Vivant et mulieres

Tenerae, amabiles,

Bonae, laboriosae.


Vivat et res publica

et qui illam regit.

Vivat nostra civitas,

Maecenatum caritas

Quae nos hic protegit.


Pereat tristitia,

Pereant osores.

Pereat diabolus,

Quivis antiburschius

Atque irrisores.


Quis confluxus hodie


E longinquo convenerunt,

Protinusque successerunt

In commune forum.


Vivat nostra societas,

Vivant studiosi;

Crescat una veritas

Floreat fraternitas

Patriae prosperitas.


Alma Mater floreat,

Quae nos educavit;

Caros et commilitones,

Dissitas in regiones

Sparsos, congregavit
