Anthem Lyrics English

O Lord, protect for us our Majesty the Sultan

And the people in our land,

With honour and peace.

May he live long, strong and supported,

Glorified be his leadership.

For him we shall lay down our lives.

May he live long, strong and supported,

Glorified be his leadership.

For him we shall lay down our lives.

O Oman, since the time of the Prophet

We are a dedicated people amongst the noblest Arabs.

Be happy! Qaboos has come

With the blessing of Heaven.

Be cheerful and commend him to the protection of our prayers.
