Iraq National Anthem

Iraq National Anthem
My Homeland (Mawtini)

Lyrics
My homeland, My homeland
Glory and beauty, Sublimity and splendor
Are in your hills, Are in your hills

Life and deliverance, Pleasure and hope
Are in your air, Are in your Air
Will I see you? Will I see you?
Safe and comforted, Sound and honored

Will I see you in your eminence?
Reaching to the stars, Reaching to the stars
My homeland, My homeland

My homeland, My homeland
The youth will not tire, ’till your independence
Or they die
We will drink from death
And will not be to our enemies
Like slaves, Like slaves

We do not want, We do not want
An eternal humiliation
Nor a miserable life
We do not want
But we will bring back
Our storied glory, Our storied glory
My homeland, My homeland

The sword and the pen
Not the talk nor the quarrel
Are our symbols, Are our symbols
Our glory and our covenant
And a duty to be faithful
Moves us, moves us

Our glory, Our glory
Is an honorable cause
And a waving standard
O, behold you
In your eminence
Victorious over your enemies
Victorious over your enemies
My homeland, My homeland

was added in green in 1991 and was modified in 2004 and 2008.
