English Translation of The National Anthem

From all time the Lao people have glorified their fatherland,

United in heart, spirit and vigour as one,

Resolutely moving forwards,

Respecting and increasing the dignityof the Lao people,

And proclaiming to be right to be their own masters.

The Lao people of all origins are equal,

And will no longer imperialists and traitors to harm them.

The entire people will safegurad the independence,

And the freedom of the nation.

They are resolved to struggle for the victory,

In order to lead the nation to prosperity.
