We are all for our nation, for our
flag and glory!
Our valor and our writings are
The envy of the ages.
Our mountains and our valleys,
They envy of the ages.
Our mountains and our valleys,
they bring forth stalwart men.
And to Perfection all our
Efforts we devote.
We are all for our Nation, for
Our flag and glory!
Our Elders and our children,
They await our Country's call,
And on the Day of Crisis they
are as Lions of the Jungle.

The heart of our East is forever Lebanon,
May God preserve it until the end of time.
WE are all for our Nation, for our flag and glory!
The Gems of the East are its land and sea.
Throughout the world its good
deeds flow from pole to pole.
And its name is its glory since time began.
The Cedar Symbol – is its Pride.
We are all for our Nation, for
our flag and glory!
