About:

Iran has had four anthems in the last three decades. The current national anthem was adopted in 1990, replacing the anthem used during the life of Ayatollah Khomeini. Before then, during the Iranian Revolution, the popular patriotic song Ey Iran was used as the anthem, and under the Shah, the Imperial anthem of Iran was the official national anthem.

Lyrics:

Persian:

سر زد از افق مهر خاوران
فروغ دیده‌ی حق باوران
بهمن، فرّ ایمان ماست
پیامت ای امام، استقلال، آزادی نقش جان ماست
شهیدان، پیچیده در گوش زمان فریادتان
پاینده مانی و جاودان
جمهوری اسلامی ایران

Persian (transliterated):

Sar zad az ofoq mehre xåvarån
Foruqe dideye haqbåvarån
Bahman, farre imâne mâst
Payåmat ey Emåm, esteqlâl, âzâdi, naqše jâne måst
Šahidån, pičide dar guše zamân faryådetân
Påyande mâni o jåvedân
Jomhuriye Eslâmiye Irân

English:

Upwards on the horizon the Eastern Sun rises
The light in the eyes of the Believers in Justice
Bahman is the zenith of our faith.
Your message, O Imam, independence, and freedom, the purpose of our lives, is imprinted on our souls
O Martyrs! Your cries echo in the ears of time:
Be enduring, continuing, and eternal,
Islamic Republic of Iran
