Lao original[1][2] Romanisation[3] IPA transcription English translation

ຊາດລາວຕັ້ງແຕ່ໃດມາ
ລາວທຸກທົ່ວຫນ້າເຊີດຊູສຸດໃຈ
ຮ່ວມແຮງຮ່ວມຈິດຮ່ວມໃຈ
ສາມັກຄີກັນເປັນກຳລັງດຽວ

ເດັດດ່ຽວພ້ອມກັນກ້າວຫນ້າ
ບູຊາຊູກຽດຂອງລາວ
ສົ່ງເສີມໃຊ້ສິດເປັນເຈົ້າ
ລາວທຸກຊົນເຜົ່າສະເໝີພາບກັນ

ບໍ່ໃຫ້ພວກຈັກກະພັດ
ແລະພວກຂາຍຊາດເຂົ້າມາລົບກວນ
ລາວທັງມວນຊູເອກະລາດ
ອິດສະຫລະພາບຂອງຊາດລາວໄວ້

ຕັດສິນໃຈສູ້ຊີງເອົາໄຊ
ພາຊາດກ້າວໄປສູ່ຄວາມວັດທະນາ

For all time, the Lao people
Have glorified their motherland,
United in heart,
Spirit and vigour as one.

Resolutely moving forwards,
Respecting and increasing the dignity of the Lao people
And proclaiming the right to be their own masters.
The Lao people of all origins are equal

And will no longer allow imperialists
And traitors to harm them.
The entire people will safeguard the independence
And the freedom of the Lao nation.

They are resolved to struggle for victory
In order to lead the nation to prosperity.
