English Lyrics
Verse I

Indonesia my native land, the land where I shed my blood. (Note: tanah air literally means "land (and) water")

There I stand, as a guard of my mother. (Note: "mother" here refers to ibu pertiwi which means 'motherland')

Indonesia my nationality, my nation and my country.

Let us exclaim "Indonesia Unites!"

Long live my land, long live my state,My nation, my people, everyone.

Awaken your spirit, awaken your bodies

For Great Indonesia!


Great Indonesia, independent and free,

My land, my country, which I love. (probably equivalent to English's Long live my land)

Great Indonesia, independent and free,

Long live Great Indonesia! (*2)

Verse II

Indonesia, an eminent country, our wealthy country.

There I shall be forever.

Indonesia, the country of our ancestors, a relic of all of us.

Let us pray for Indonesia's prosperity.

May her soil be fertile and spirited her soul,The nation, the people, everyone.

Conscious be their heart and their mindFor Indonesia the Great!


Verse III

Indonesia, a sacred country, our victorious country.

There I stand, guarding my true Mother.

Indonesia, a beaming country, a country I love with all my heart.

Let's make a vow, "forever Indonesia!"

Blessed be her people and her sons,All her islands, and her seas.

Fast be the country's progress and the progress of her youth

For Indonesia the Great!.
