AN ODE TO COMRADE KIM JONG IL COMPOSED BY PRESIDENT KIM IL SUNG ON THE OCCASION OF HIS 50TH BIRTHDAY
February 16, 1992
Jong Il Peak rises high on Mt. Paektu
The blue waters of the Sobaek meanders;
Here, 50 years ago, the Bright Star was born
A master with pen and sword, loyal and dutiful.
He commands respect and praise from all.
And the cheers for him rock heaven and earth.
