Burmese National Anthem Lyrics in Burmese (Burmese Script)

တရားမျှတ လွတ်လပ်ခြင်းနဲ့မသွေ၊
(တို့ပြည်၊ တို့မြေ၊)
များလူခပ်သိမ်း၊ ငြိမ်းချမ်းစေဖို့၊
ခွင့်တူညီမျှ၊ ဝါဒဖြူစင်တဲ့ပြည၊
(တို့ပြည်၊ တို့မြေ၊)
ပြည်ထောင်စုအမွေ၊ အမြဲတည်တံ့စေ၊
အဓိဋ္ဌာန်ပြုပေ၊ ထိန်းသိမ်းစို့လေ ။
(ကမ္ဘာမကျေ၊ မြန်မာပြည်၊
တို့ဘိုးဘွား အမွေစစ်မို့ ချစ်မြတ်နိုးပေ။)
ပြည်ထောင်စုကို အသက်ပေးလို့ တို့ကာကွယ်မလေ၊
ဒါတို့ပြည် ဒါတို့မြေ တို့ပိုင်နက်မြေ။
တို့ပြည် တို့မြေ အကျိုးကို ညီညာစွာတို့တစ်တွေ
ထမ်းဆောင်ပါစို့လေ တို့တာဝန်ပေ အဖိုးတန်မြေ။

Burmese National Anthem Lyrics Meaning in English

Where prevail justice and independence
(It’s our country … our land)
Where prevail equal rights and correct policies
For people to lead a peaceful life
(It’s our country … our land)
We solemnly pledge to preserve
Union, the heritage, for perpetuity
(‘Til the end of the world, Myanmar!,
Since she is the true inheritance from our forefathers, we love and value her.)
We will fight and give our lives for the union
This is the country and land of our own
For her prosperity, we will responsibly shoulder the task,
Standing as one in duty to our precious land.
