Il Marinajo
The Crescent o'er the Cross is hoisted high,
And cymbals clash and pipe and drum are loud;
While o'er the Christian captives chain'd and sad,
The unbeliever's song of triumph sounds.

Chorus:
Allahhu, Akbar!*
Mohammadar rasoollula.
Allahhu, Akbar!
Mohammadar rasoollula.
Allahhu, Akbar!
Lailaha illa'l lah.
Lailaha illa'l lah.
Allahhu, Akbar!
Allahhu, Akbar!
Allahhu, Akbar!


*Translation:- God is most great! God is most great!
Mahommed is God's apostle!
There is no Deity but God.
