Just in time for the Grammys: The Song of the People's Judges

Here it is: 人民法官之歌 (Song of the People's Judges). Thanks to Glenn Tiffert for the link.

Here is a quick and dirty translation of the lyrics (no time for a proper translation):

Let loyalty be cast in the magnificent state seal
And support the golden balance-scales with impartiality
Open up and advance along the road to construction of the legal system
The spring wind of law blows across the cities and the villages.

To investigate the smallest detail, to eliminate the false and keep the true is our duty
To punish evil and promote good, and to support justice is our mission
O, be proud, people’s judges of the Republic!
O, be proud, people’s judges of the Republic!
Glory belongs to us
Glory belongs to the motherland
Glory belongs to the people!

Let loyalty be cast in the magnificent state seal
And support the golden balance-scales with impartiality
Open up and advance along the road to construction of the legal system
The spring wind of law blows across the cities and the villages.

To be loyal to the law and to strictly carry out the law is our bounden duty
To serve the people and to contribute selflessly is our sincere wish
O, be proud, people’s judges of the Republic!
O, be proud, people’s judges of the Republic!
Glory belongs to us
Glory belongs to the motherland
Glory belongs to the people!
Glory belongs to the people!
