Egypt National Anthem
listen Listen to the National Anthem

My homeland, my homeland, my homeland,
My love and my heart are for thee.
(repeat previous two lines)

Egypt! O mother of all lands,
My hope and my ambition,
How can one count
The blessings of the Nile for mankind?


Egypt! Most precious jewel,
Shining on the brow of eternity!
O my homeland, be for ever free,
Safe from every foe!


Egypt! Noble are thy children,
Loyal, and guardians of thy soil.
In war and peace
We give our lives for thy sake.

CHORUS (without repeats)
