Transcript of song performed by children at an event marking the 47th anniversary of the Fatah movement:
"How beautiful you are, my country 
The love in my heart for you is great 
You have brought up and educated 
generation after generation, 
You waited patiently and discovered your heroic children 
Oh, my pure land, I shall saturate you with my blood 
I shall live and die upon your green ground 
Your ground satiates us, your goodness satisfies us 
I shall redeem you with my life, oh my land 
Your embrace warms us 
Your ground satiates us, your goodness satisfies us 
I shall redeem you with my life, oh my land 
Your embrace warms us" 
(emphasis added)
