English Translation

Us all! for our nation, for our emblem and glory!
Our valor and our writings are the envy of the ages.
Our mountains and our valleys, they bring forth stalwart men.
And to Perfection all our efforts we devote.
Us all! For our nation, for our emblem and glory!

Our Elders and our children, they await our Country’s call,
And on the Day of Crisis they are as Lions of the Jungle.
The heart of our East is ever Lebanon,
May God preserve her until the end of time.
Us all! For our nation, for our emblem and glory!

The Gems of the East are her land and sea.
Throughout the world her good deeds flow from pole to pole.
And her name is her glory since time began.
Immortality’s Symbol–the Cedar–is her Pride.
Us all! For our nation, for our emblem and glory!
