English lyrics to the Thailand National Anthem

I have composed a set of English lyrics which can be sung to the beautiful melody of the Thailand National Anthem . I tried to keep the meaning of the English lyrics as close as possible to the meaning of the Thai lyrics:


“Thai-LAND unites the flesh and blood of all the Thais,

The land of Thailand belongs to all the Thais,

Their sovereign-TY has always long endured,

For the Thais seek l-o-v-e and also un-ity,

Thais love peace you know, but to war they’ll go,

No tyrant can their freedoms take away,

The Thais will give up every drop of blood,

Long last the nation’s pride and victory HOORAY.”


I would appreciate your comments and suggestions for improvement to the lyrics.
