Anthem Lyrics English

God is greatest!

God is greatest!

He is above plots of the aggressors,

And He is the best helper of the oppressed.

With faith and with weapons I shall defend my country,

And the light of truth will shine in my hand.

Sing with me!

Sing with me!

God is greatest!

God is greatest!

God, God, God is greatest!

God is above the aggressors.

O world, look up and listen!

The enemy's army is coming,

Wishing to destroy me.

With truth and with my gun I shall repulse him.

And should I be killed,

I would kill him with me.

Sing with me -

Woe to the Imperialists!

And God is above the treacherous tyrant.

God is greatest!

Therefore glorify Him, O my country,

And seize the forehead of the tyrant

And destroy him!
