شاهنشاه ما زنده بادا
پايد کشور به فرش جاودان

And may his glory make immortal our land
For Pahlavi dynasty improved Iran
A hundredfold from where it once used to stand
Though once beset by the foemen's rage
Now it has peace in his keeping sure
We of Iran, rejoice in every age
Oh, may God protect him both now and evermore

Translation of the long version

Long live the Shah, our King of Kings,
And may his glory make immortal our land.
For Pahlavi improved Iran
A hundredfold from where it once used to stand.
Though once beset by the foemen's rage,
Now it has peace in his keeping sure;
We of Iran, rejoice in ev'ry age.
Oh, may God protect him both now and evermore.
Oh, Sun that shines on Iran's banner,
Shed upon each nation rays strong and fair.
Those days keep in our recollection
When thy flashing sword brought peace everywhere.
We give our lives in thy shade benign,
And take the lives of each enemy.
We are the heirs of Kianis' line;
Oh, beloved land, ever wholly thine are we.
Of Right we've been and still are champions.
What is right is all we ever demand.
Through worship of the King, we ever
From the enemy will guard this our land.
"Good Deeds" the first virtue of our call,
"Good Thoughts" the light our hearts and minds to guide,
And through "Good Speech" shining, one and all,
This is Iran's fame that will echo far and wide.
