About:

Negaraku (My Country) was picked as the Malaysian anthem at the time of the Federation of Malaya's independence from Britain in 1957. The selection of the anthem followed an international competition, and was adopted from the state anthem of Perak, one of the constituent states of Malaysia. The melody of the anthem was an adaptation of a piece by the nineteenth-century French composer Pierre-Jean de Béranger.

Lyrics:

Malay:

Negaraku, tanah tumpahnya darahku,
Rakyat hidup, bersatu dan maju,
Rahmat Bahagia, Tuhan kurniakan,
Raja kita, selamat bertakhta.
Rahmat Bahagia, Tuhan kurniakan,
Raja kita, selamat bertakhta.

Jawi:

نڬاراكو، تانه تومڤهڽ دارهكو
رعيت هيدوڤ، برساتو دان ماجو
رحمة بهاڬيا، توهن كورنياكن
راج كيت، سلامت برتختا
رحمة بهاڬيا، توهن كورنياكن
راج كيت، سلامت برتختا

English:

My country, the land where my blood has spilt.
The people living united and progressive,
May God bestow blessing and happiness,
May our King have a successful reign.
May God bestow blessing and happiness,
May our King have a successful reign.
