Lyrics of Nepali National Anthem

सयौं थुँगा फूलका हामी, एउटै माला नेपाली

सार्वभौम भै फैलिएका, मेची-महाकाली।

प्रकृतिका कोटी-कोटी सम्पदाको आंचल

वीरहरूका रगतले, स्वतन्त्र र अटल।

ज्ञानभूमि, शान्तिभूमि तराई, पहाड, हिमाल

अखण्ड यो प्यारो हाम्रो मातृभूमि नेपाल।

बहुल जाति, भाषा, धर्म, संस्कृति छन् विशाल

अग्रगामी राष्ट्र हाम्रो, जय जय नेपाल।

English Translation

Woven from hundreds of flowers, we are one garland that’s Nepali

Spread sovereign from Mechi to Mahakali.

A shawl of nature’s wealth unending

From the blood of the braves, a nation free and non-moving.

A land of knowledge, of peace, the plains, hills and mountains tall

Indivisible, this beloved land of ours, our motherland Nepal.

Of many races, languages, religions, and cultures of incredible sprawl

This progressive nation of ours, all hail Nepal!
