English lyrics

My island (heart) lies o'er the ocean;
Like a wreath of flowers upon the sea;
With a (the) light of Maker from far above;
Shining the with the brilliance of rays of life;
Our Father's wondrous creation;
Bequeathed to us, our Motherland;
I'll never leave my dear home sweet home;
God of our forefathers protect and bless forever Marshall Islands.

Anij an ro jemem wonakke im kejrammon Aelin kein am.
