سرود ملی جمهوری اسلامی ایران

به نام پروردگار بخشنده و مهربان

با افتخار و سرافرازی از توحید ایمانی

و شعار: حیات، از افلاک پیامی

تو پرچم سربلند اسلامی همه جا

پرستشگاه ما و سرور جاودانی

به جای این جاودانی و پیروزی نهایی

از آسمان پیامی وحی درآمد نوازی

زمین را خورشید اسلامی روشن کرد

و ماه را دولت خود، دولت جمهوری اسلامی داد

اگر از سر گیرد این آزرم گرد زمین

به زیر دستهای پاک آسمانی اسلام، زندگان شود

پیروز باشی ای ایران!

و تو را سپاس ای ایزد به بخشندگی و مهربانی

و تو را سپاس ای ایزد به بخشندگی و مهربانی

National Anthem of the Islamic Republic of Iran

In the name of the compassionate and merciful God

With pride and exalted faith in your unity

And the slogan: Life, a message from the skies

Your high-flying banner of Islam everywhere

Our place of worship and eternal lord

Instead of this eternity and final victory

A message of revelation came from the sky

The sun of Islam illuminated the earth

And bestowed upon it its fortune, the Islamic Republic

If this azure neckband should fall from the earth

It shall revive under the heavenly hands of Islam

Be victorious, O Iran!

And to you, O Creator, we give thanks for your grace and kindness

And to you, O Creator, we give thanks for your grace and kindness
