سر زد از افق مهر خاوران
فروغ دیده‌ی حق باوران
بهمن، فرّ ایمان ماست
پیامت ای امام، استقلال، آزادی نقش جان ماست
شهیدان، پیچیده در گوش زمان فریادتان
پاینده مانی و جاودان
جمهوری اسلامی ایران
Sar zad az ofogh mehre khâvarân
Forughe dideye haghbâvarân
Bahman, farre imâne māst
Payâmat ey Emâm, esteghlâl, âzâdi, naghšhe jâne mâst

Upwards on the horizon rises the Eastern Sun
The light in the eyes of the believers in justice
The Month of Bahman is the brilliance of our faith.
Your message, O Imam, of independence, and freedom, is imprinted on our souls
O Martyrs! Your clamours echo in the ears of time:
Enduring, continuing, and eternal,
The Islamic Republic of Iran
