The National anthem of Oman is "Nashid as-Salaam as-Sultani" which means in English "The Sultan's Anthem".
Oman's anthem lyrics were written by Rashid bin Uzayyiz al KHUSAIDI and the music was written by James Frederick MILLS, arranged by Bernard EBBINGHAUS.
Adopted 1932; New Words Were Written After QABOOS Bin Said Al Said Gained Power In 1970; The Anthem Was First Performed By The Band Of A British Ship As A Salute To The Sultan During A 1932 Visit To Muscat; The Bandmaster Of The HMS Hawkins Was Asked To Write A Salutation To The Sultan On The Occasion Of His Visiting The Ship.

Omani anthem lyrics (English translation)
O Lord, protect for us our Majesty the Sultan
And the people in our land,
With honour and peace.
May he live long, strong and supported,
Glorified be his leadership.
For him we shall lay down our lives.
Ahd Il Nabi O Oman, since the time of the Prophet
We are a dedicated people amongst the noblest Arabs.
Be happy! Qaboos has come
With the blessing of Heaven.
Be cheerful and commend him to the protection of our prayers.
