About:

Nahnu Jund Allah Jund Al-watan (We are the Soldiers of God and of our Homeland) was previously the anthem of the Sudanese army and was adopted as the national anthem in 1956, after Sudan achieved independence from Britain.

Lyrics:

Arabic:

نحن جند الله جند الوطن *** إن دعا داعي الفداء لن نخــن
نتحدى الموت عند المحن *** نشتري المجد بأغلى ثمن
هذه الأرض لنا فليعش *** سوداننا علماً بين الأمم
يابني السودان هذا رمزكم *** يحمل العبء ويحمى أرضكم

Arabic (transliteration):

Nahnu Jundu’llah Jundul’watan.
In Da’a Da’ie al-Fida Lan Nakhun.
Natahadd’l Mawt Indal Mihan.
Nashtari’l Madjd Bi Aghla Thaman.
Hazihi’l Ardu Lana!
Falya’ish Sudanuna,
Alaman Bayna’l Umam.
Ya Benil’sudan, Haza ramzukum;
Yahmli’l, ib’aa Wa Yahmi Ardakum.

English:

We are the soldiers of God, the soldiers of our homeland,
We never betray the call for sacrifice.
Death we defy at adversity.
Glory we buy with the highest price.
This land is ours.
So let our Sudan, live long, higher,
showing the way among the nations, like a banner.
O, sons of the Sudan this is your standard,
shoulders the burden and shield ye land.
