Monarchist Music: Sansoen Phra Barami
The glorious royal anthem of the Kingdom of Thailand, very loyal and very proper, as played at the start of each broadcast day on Thai television.
We, servants of His great Majesty,
prostrate our heart and head,
to pay respect to the ruler, whose merits are boundless,
outstanding in the great Chakri dinasty,
a great of Siam,
with great and lasting honor,
(We are) secure and peaceful because of the royal rule,
The fruits of your virtues preserve
The people in happiness and in peace,
May it be that
whatever you will,
according to the hopes of your great heart
as we wish (you) victory, hurrah!
