National Anthem
Warrior, warrior, warrior
O my land, ancestors' abode
Warrior, warrior, warrior
O my folk, folk o' eternity
With bravery arm'd, the burning in my vendetta
Thirst in my blood fo' my land, my home
Wars I've fought, mountains I've climb'd
I've conquer'd the impossible, o' frontiers cross'd
With the will o' winds, fire o' weapons
And grit o' my nation o' struggles
(Palestine, my home, thou art my fire)
Palestine, my home, path o' my triumph
Palestine, land o' brace and o' my strife.
By thy oath under the shade o' thy flag
By my land and nation, the pain that burns
As a warrior I shall live and remain as such
As a warrior I shall die, until my country returns
O Warrior!
