Signifying great victory, I raised my hand triumphant.
I yearn solely for the First, my eyes merely upon the best.
Three letters are my symbol* , among Arabs it is known:
Triumph, victory...distinct from foreign signs.
I am an Arab...honored and passionately driven,
An Arabian horse I ride, distinguished by excellence.
O Teller of great triumphs, inscribe the brightest words,
About us and prosperity, it ascends to farthest stars.
Though I journey on dark nights, I am fond of light and joy,
Where ambitious men dwell, I find myself at home.
He who defies time meets an invincible opponent,
Yet time I do challenge, upon a horse and on foot.
By winning I am impassioned, for it feeds a fiery soul,
Born among people who from giving never bore.
My horse is among the finest, for her pain I know the cure.
I comprehend her thoughts, and she discerns mine.
My vast knowledge about her within deepest oceans found.
Nurtured by my deeds, she drank like the glorious.
Among more than fifty nations whose feats are renowned,
One hundred and sixty kilometers stretched vastly beyond.
Arduous moments prolonged on most perilous paths,
Horses were bewildered facing hardship and terror.
Every rider who withdraws or rests is forgiven,
Except us, for our souls are ambitiously driven.
In this manner we have been raised, amid passion and fervor,
Every trial we confront with determination and valor.
We have won, and all Arabs celebrate with joy,
After a harsh challenge, sweet victory we enjoy.
This triumph we proudly gift with sentiments sincere,
To Khalifa, the Leader, and our people who we endear.
*The symbol refers to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum's gesture when he raises three fingers in the moment of victory. It stands for three words; each word is composed of three letters from the Arabic alphabet that symbolize triumph, victory, and Arab origin.
