The Egyptian national anthem
بلادي بلادي بلادي
لك حبي وفؤادي
بلادي بلادي بلادي
لك حبي وفؤادي

مصر يا أم البلاد
أنت غايتي والمراد
وعلى كل العباد
كم لنيلك من أيادي

بلادي بلادي بلادي
لك حبي وفؤادي

مصر أنت أغلى درة
فوق جبين الدهر غرة
يا بلادي عيشي حرة
واسلمي رغم الأعادي

بلادي بلادي بلادي
لك حبي وفؤادي

مصر أولادك كرام
أوفياء يرعوا الزمام
نحن حرب وسلام
وفداكي يا بلادي

بلادي بلادي بلادي

note 

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 countries,
You are my hope and my ambition,
And above all people,
Your Nile has countless graces!

My homeland, my homeland, my homeland
You have my love and my heart.

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

My homeland, my homeland, my homeland
You have my love and my heart.

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

My homeland, my homeland, my homeland
You have my love and my heart.
