Original Malay lyrics[edit]

Sarawak Tanah Airku
Negeriku Tanah Airku Sarawak
Engkaulah tanah pusakaku
Tanah tumpah darahku
Ibu pertiwiku
Rakyat hidup mesra dan bahagia
Damai muhibah sentiasa
Bersatu, Berusaha, Berbakti
Untuk Sarawak kucintai
Sarawak dalam Malaysia
Aman makmur Rahmat Tuhan Maha Esa
Kekallah Sarawak bertuah
Teras perjuangan rakyat
Berjaya berdaulat

Literal English translation[edit]

Sarawak, my Motherland
My state, my homeland, O Sarawak
You are my native land
My dear birthplace
My Motherland.
The citizens live in safety and harmony
Peaceful, cooperative (with each other) always
For there's Unity, Effort, Devotion
For my beloved Sarawak.
Sarawak, a part of Malaysia
Peace and serenity, the gift of The Only One
Sarawak, be lucky forever
The core of the citizen's effort
Your success and sovereignty be maintained.
