Arabic Lyrics Transliteration

Chorus:

Biladi, biladi, biladi
Laki hubbi wa-fu’adi
Biladi, biladi, biladi
Laki hubbi wa-fu’adi
Misr ya umm al-bilad
Anti ghayati wal-murad
Wa-‘ala kull al-‘ibad
Kam li-Nilik min ayad

Chorus

Misr anti aghla durrah
Fawqa gabin ad-dahr ghurrah
Ya biladi ‘ayshi hurrah
Wa-aslami raghm al-a‘adi

Chorus

Misr ya ardi an-na‘im
Sudti bi-al-magdi al-qadim
Maqsidi dafu al-gharim
Wa-‘ala Allah i‘timadi.

Chorus

Misr awladik kiram
Awfiya’ yar‘u az-zimam
Nahnu harbun wa-salam
Wa-fidaki ya biladi.

Chorus:

My homeland, my homeland, my homeland,
You have my love and my Heart.
My homeland, my homeland, my homeland,
You have my love and my Heart.
Egypt! O mother of all lands,
you are my hope and my ambition,
And above all people
Your Nile has countless graces

Chorus

Egypt! Most precious gem,
A blaze on the brow of eternity!
O my homeland, be for ever free,
Safe from every enemy!

Chorus

Egypt, land of bounties
You are filled with the ancient glory
My purpose is to repel the enemy
And on God I rely

Chorus

Egypt, noble are thy children.
Loyal, and guardians of the reins.
Be we at war or peace
We will sacrifice ourselves for you, my country.

Chorus
