O God, (please) prolong the life
Of His Majesty,
(May his) just rule protect the land,
Lead the people (into) eternal happiness,
Peace be with our country and sultan,
God save Brunei, the abode of peace.

O God, we plead and cry to Thee,
Our Sultan and King, him a long life lease,
Help him rule thy lands, disposition wise,
Gates of glory and joy he shall boldly prise,
Peace be on our land, peace be on our Sultan,
God save Brunei, our beloved abode of peace.
