Anthem Lyrics

Lil din l-art helwa, l-Omm li tatna isimha,

Hares Mulej, kif dejjem Int harist:

Ftakar li lilha bl-ohla dawl libbist.



Aghti, kbir Alla, id-dehen lil min jahkimha,

Rodd il-hniena lis-sid, sahha 'l-haddiem:

Seddaq il-ghaqda fil-Maltin u s-sliem.

Anthem Lyrics English

Guard her, O Lord, as ever Thou hast guarded!

This Motherland so dear whose name we bear!

Keep her in mind, whom Thou hast made so fair!



May he who rules, for wisdom be regarded!

In master mercy, strength in man increase!

Confirm us all, in unity and peace!
