The Johor State Anthem (Malay: Lagu Bangsa Johor), which was composed by Armenian bandmaster Mackertich Galistan Abdullah, had no official lyrics until 1914 when a staff member of the Hong Kong Bank in Johor Bahru, Hubert Allen Courtney, wrote the first English words and Haji Mohamed Said Hj. Sulaiman rewrote it in Malay. It was adapted from the famous Malay tune Dondang Sayang and officially approved and adopted by Sultan Ibrahim in 1897.

Malay English[1]
Lagu Bangsa Johor

Allah peliharakan Sultan
'Nugerahkan dia segala kehormatan
Sihat dan ria, kekal dan makmur
Luaskan kuasa menaungkan kami
Rakyat dipimpini berzaman lagi
Dengan merdeka bersatu hati
Allah berkati Johor
Allah selamatkan Sultan.

God bless the Sultan
Grant that honour, health and happiness
May be with him ever more!
Long may his hand protect our land
and lead his people on; Through years to be
in freedom and in unity
God bless Johor
God save the Sultan.
