सयौं थुँगा फूलका हामी, एउटै माला नेपाली
सार्वभौम भै फैलिएका, मेची-महाकाली।(2)

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।

Meaning In English:
    Woven from hundreds of flowers, we are one garland that's Nepali
    Spread sovereign from Mechi to Mahakali

    A shawl of nature's wealth unending
    From the blood of the braves, a nation free and non-moving

    A land of knowledge, of peace, the plains, hills and mountains tall
    Indivisible, this beloved land of ours, our motherland Nepal

    Of many races, languages, religions, and cultures of incredible sprawl
    This progressive nation of ours, all hail Nepal! 


    Older National anthem of Nepal was adopted in 1962 and dropped after the abolishment of the monarchy. 
    श्रीमान् गम्भीर नेपाली
    प्रचण्ड प्रतापी भूपति
    श्री ५ सरकार महाराजाधिराजको
    सदा रहोस् उन्नति
    राखुन् चिरायु ईशले
    प्रजा फैलियोस्
    पुकारौ जय प्रेमले
    हामी नेपाली साराले 
English translation

    You, the gallant Nepalese,

    May he live for many years to come,
    And may the number of his subjects increase,
    Let every Nepalese sing this with joy.
