(ကမ္ဘာမကျေ၊ မြန်မာပြည်၊
တို့ဘိုးဘွား အမွေစစ်မို့ ချစ်မြတ်နိုးပေ။)
ပြည်ထောင်စုကို အသက်ပေးလို့ တို့ကာကွယ်မလေ၊
ဒါတို့ပြည် ဒါတို့မြေ တို့ပိုင်နက်မြေ။
တို့ပြည် တို့မြေ အကျိုးကို ညီညာစွာတို့တစ်တွေ
ထမ်းဆောင်ပါစို့လေ တို့တာဝန်ပေ အဖိုးတန်မြေ။

Till the end of the world, Myanmar!,
Since she is the true inheritance from our forefathers, we love and value her.
We will fight and give our lives for the union
This is the country and land of our own
For her prosperity, we will responsibly shoulder the task,
Standing as one in duty to our precious land.

Literal[change | edit source]

Until the world crumbles, Myanmar!,
Our ancestors gave us the inheritance after fighting wars with love.
We will sacrifice our lives and our labours to protect the Union.
This is our Nation, this is our Land, the land that we own.
Our nation, our land will prosper with productivity and equality as pictured
To unite in keeping to the duties of our valuable land.
