عاشت بلادي عاشت بلادي
أماراتنا عاشت
أعلي معاني السماء
تحميك في العليا عاشت

يا راية السماء فوق فوق
لمعي لأمجد عالي
سهلت أمامك الدروب
رفرفي لتبقي عالي

نقدم الغالي نفديك يا وطن
نحمي الدين نرتدي الحزام
نوفي العهد بالصدق والإيمان
نسلم الكرامة لأناس الكرام



Long live my nation, long live my nation
Our Emirates, long live
In the highest of skies
You have been safeguarded, may you live forever

Oh flag of the sky, high above
Shine to glorify the highest
The paths are made easy for you
Flutter so you may stay high

We offer the precious, we sacrifice for you, oh homeland
We protect the religion, we wear the belt
We fulfill the covenant with sincerity and faith
We surrender dignity to dignified people
