Egyptian anthem lyrics (English translation)
My homeland, my homeland, my homeland,
You have my love and my Heart.
My homeland, my homeland, my homeland,
You have my love and my Heart.
Egypt! O mother of all lands,
you are my hope and my ambition,
And above all people
Your Nile has countless graces
Egypt! Most precious gem,
A blaze on the brow of eternity!
O my homeland, be for ever free,
Safe from every enemy!
Egypt, land of bounties
You are filled with the ancient glory
My purpose is to repel the enemy
And on God I rely
Egypt, noble are thy children.
Loyal, and guardians of the reins.
Be we at war or peace
We will sacrifice ourselves for you, my country.
