Lyrics[edit]

First verse:

Indonesia tanah air beta
Pusaka abadi nan jaya
Indonesia sejak dulu kala
Tetap dipuja-puja bangsa

Reff:

Di sana tempat lahir beta
Dibuai, dibesarkan bunda
Tempat berlindung di hari tua
Tempat akhir menutup mata

Second verse:

Sungguh indah tanah air beta
Tiada bandingnya di dunia
Karya indah Tuhan Maha Kuasa
Bagi bangsa yang memujanya

Reff:

Indonesia ibu pertiwi
Kau kupuja, kau kukasihi
Tenagaku bahkan pun jiwaku
Kepadamu rela kuberi

Lyrics in English[edit]

First verse:

Indonesia my beloved homeland
A land that's stood the test of time
For countless millenia
Praised has this land been

Reff:

It is where I was born
In a mother's care, raised
Where I seek shelter in old age
And site of mine last breath

Second verse:

Indonesia, thou art beautiful
No other lands can compare
The work of the LORD Almighty
For a nation that praises Him

Reff:

Indonesia, motherland dear
I adore thee, I love thee
All my strength, my life even
I pledge to thee, my homeland.
