Indeed, you, the father of Oudai, (Saddam)
By the life of Udai and Qusai

(Repeat)

You are the inspiration of the nation
The miracle of this age
You are the conscience of the people
You are the bread and the water

(repeat)

We swear by the (rivers of ) Tigris and Euphrates
And the tenderness of mothers
Your ever-flowing river is a source of life

(repeat)

Indeed O father of Udai
Indeed, you, the father of Oudai, (Saddam)
By the life of Udai and Qusai

(Repeat)

You are the inspiration of the nation
The miracle of this age
You are the conscience of the people
You are the bread and the water

(Repeat)

We boast of your name to the ages
You, who conveys our voice to all
Your home is always safe
Indeed O father of Udai

(Repeat)
