Verse 1
Heavens protect the King
Send him happiness and glory
Us, your servants want you to reign
O heir of the Sovereign Builders
and rule the Khmer Land and make it high and filled with honor.

Temples, hidden and asleep in the forest
Remembering glorious Moha Nokor
Khmer is eternal like a rock
We hope for the luck of Cambodia
The empire which challenges ages.

Let us be faithful to our fathers' faiths
Hence, the heavens will help prosper
