Jordan National Anthem

Arabic script

١
عاش المليك
عاش المليك
ساميا مقامه
خافقات في المعالي أعلامه

٢
نحن أحرزنا المنى
يوم أحييت لنا
نهضة تحفزنا
تتسامى فوق هام الشهب

جوقة:
يا مليك العرب
لك من خير نبي
شرف في النسب
حدثت عنه بطون الكتب

٣
الشباب الأمجد
جندك المجند
عزمه لا يخمد
فيه من معناك رمز الدأب

جوقة

٤
دمت نورا وهدى
في البرايا سيدا
هانئا ممجدا
تحت أعلامك مجد العرب

English translation

I
Long live the King!
Long live the King!
His position sublime,
His banners waving in glory supreme.

II
We achieved our goal,
On the day you revived for us,
A revolution gives us our motivation!
Flying over the shoulders of the highest comets.

Chorus:
O king of Arabs,
From the best prophet you have.
The honour of dynasty,
Talked about in the depths of books!

III
All the youthful men,
Are your armed armies
His determination never dies out!
Getting from your meaning a symbol of well-being![a]

Chorus

IV
May you stay the light and the guide,
A master in being away of all sins and wrong-doing,
Living your life happily and well-respected!
Under your flying flag rests the glory of all Arabs.
