Arise, oh shredded nation, Reform oh motherland.
How I beseech your affection, oh! , How I long to die in your arms. Or kill for your sake
My sunken heart swirl low, in a rheumatic pain of hustle in the dazzle of your beauty.
Oh! How I hate my countrymen, the obvious ones
Reform oh shredded nation
For your firstborns were beasts, they have chewed you astride
Reform oh motherland Sudan,
Meek and diligent, you embrace your womb, and bring forth a generation
Know your enemies oh shredded nation, to them your shame,
A generation that rape their mothers, and burry their sons in a mass grave
When they come back, to apologize, you I'll be too old to remember
Or gone oh shredded nation
