National Anthem

In 1946, the National Anthem was written by the late Abdul Munim Rifai, a renowned Jordanian poet who later served as prime minister. Abdul Qader Tannir composed the music.

Long live the King!
Long live the King,
His rank exalted,
His flags flying high,
In sublimity.
O King of the Arabs,
You are greatly honoured
By being a descendent of
The best Prophet,
A great lineage
That all major books spoke of.
We realised our aspirations,
When you regenerated for us
A renaissance that motivates us,
A renaissance that towers
Above the high, rising stars.
O King of the Arabs,
You are greatly honoured
By being a descendent of
The best Prophet,
A great lineage
That all major books spoke of.
The glorified youth
Are your devoted soldiers.
Their resolve will never subside
And die away,
Because from you,
They learn perseverance.
O King of the Arabs,
You are greatly honoured
By being a descendent of
The best Prophet,
A great lineage
That all major books spoke of.
May you always be
A light, a guide
And a master among people,
Delighted and exalted.
And under your flags,
The glory of the Arabs
Rises high.
O King of the Arabs,
You are greatly honoured
By being a descendent of
The best Prophet,
A great lineage
That all major books spoke of.
