National Anthem

In 1946, the National Anthem was written by the late Abdul Munim Rifai, a renowned Jordanian poet who later served as prime minister. Abdul Qader Tannir composed the music.
 

Long live the King!

Long live the King,

His rank exalted,

His flags flying high,

In sublimity.

O King of the Arabs,

You are greatly honoured

By being a descendent of

The best Prophet,

A great lineage

That all major books spoke of.

We realised our aspirations,

When you regenerated for us

A renaissance that motivates us,

A renaissance that towers

Above the high, rising stars.

O King of the Arabs,

You are greatly honoured

By being a descendent of

The best Prophet,

A great lineage

That all major books spoke of.

The glorified youth

Are your devoted soldiers.

Their resolve will never subside

And die away,

Because from you,

They learn perseverance.

O King of the Arabs,

You are greatly honoured

By being a descendent of

The best Prophet,

A great lineage

That all major books spoke of.

May you always be

A light, a guide

And a master among people,

Delighted and exalted.

And under your flags,

The glory of the Arabs

Rises high.

O King of the Arabs,

You are greatly honoured

By being a descendent of

The best Prophet,

A great lineage

That all major books spoke of.
