Lyrics

Translation of the long version

:Long live the Shah, our King of Kings, :And may his glory make immortal our land. :For Pahlavi improved Iran :A hundredfold from where it once used to stand. :Though once beset by the foemen's rage, :Now it has peace in his keeping sure; :We of Iran, rejoice in ev'ry age. :Oh, may God protect him both now and evermore. :Oh, Sun that shines on Iran's banner, :Shed upon each nation rays strong and fair. :Those days keep in our recollection :When thy flashing sword brought peace everywhere. :We give our lives in thy shade benign, :And take the lives of each enemy. :We are the heirs of Kianis' line; :Oh, beloved land, ever wholly thine are we. :Of Right we've been and still are champions. :What is right is all we ever demand. :Through worship of the King, we ever :From the enemy will guard this our land. :"Good Deeds" the first virtue of our call, :"Good Thoughts" the light our hearts and minds to guide, :And through "Good Speech" shining, one and all, :This is Iran's fame that will echo far and wide.
