Long live the King!

Long live the King!

His position is sublime,

His banners waving in glory supreme.

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.

Oh! You king of Arabs,

From the best prophet you have..

The honour of dynasty,

Talked about in the depths of books!

All the youthful men,

Are your armed armies

His determination never dies out!1

Oh! You king of Arabs,

From the best prophet you have..

The honour of dynasty,

Talked about in the depths of books!

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.

Oh! You king of Arabs,

From the best prophet you have..

The honour of dynasty,

Talked about in the depths of books!
