"Trăiască Regele" (Long live the King) was the national anthem of the Principality of Romania and later Kingdom of Romania between 1866 and 1947. The music was composed in 1862 by Eduard Hübsch, an army captain who later became the chief of the music department of the Minister of War; the lyrics were written by the Romanian poet Vasile Alecsandri in 1881, when Romania became a Kingdom.

Lyrics[edit]

Trăiască Regele
În pace și onor
De țară iubitor
Și-apărător de țară.
Fie Domn glorios
Fie peste noi,
Fie-n veci norocos
În război.
O! Doamne Sfinte,
Ceresc părinte,
Susține cu a Ta mână
Coroana Română!
Trăiască Patria
Cât soarele ceresc,
Rai vesel pământesc
Cu mare, falnic nume.
Fie-n veci el ferit
De nevoi,
Fie-n veci locuit
De eroi.
O! Doamne Sfinte,
Ceresc Părinte,
Întinde a Ta mână
Pe Țara Română!

English translation[edit]

Long live the King,
In peace and honour
Loving his country,
And defending it.
May he be a glorious Lord,
May he reign over us,
May he forever be fortunate
In war!
O! Holy Lord,
Our Father in the sky
Hold with your hand,
The Romanian Crown!
Long live the Fatherland,
As long as the Sun in the sky,
Merry earthly heaven,
With a great, glorious name.
May it forever be spared
Of want,
May it forever be inhabited
By heroes.
O! Holy Lord!
Our father in the sky,
Extend Thy hand
Over the Romanian Land!
