Nepali Lyrics:

सयौं थुँगा फूलका हामी, एउटै माला नेपाली
सार्वभौम भई फैलिएका, मेची-माहाकाली।

सयौं थुँगा फूलका हामी, एउटै माला नेपाली
सार्वभौम भई फैलिएका, मेची-माहाकाली।

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:

Hundreds of flowers – Us, one garland – Nepali
Sovereign, spread out from Mechi to Mahakali.

Hundreds of flowers – Us, one garland – Nepali
Sovereign, spread out from Mechi to Mahakali.

A playground for millions of Nature’s gifts
By the blood of heroes, independent and immovable.

Land of knowledge, land of peace, Terai, hills, mountains
Indivisible – our beloved, motherland Nepal.

multi-racial, multi-lingual, multi-religious and with a large culture
progressive nation ours, oh great Nepal!
