The tune was originally that of a popular song in Seychelles during the 19th century, originally written by French Pierre Jean de Beranger. It was adopted as the Perak Royal Anthem by Sultan Abdullah Muhammad Shah II, who was exiled on Seychelles for abetting murder.

In 1957, the national anthem of Malaysia, Negaraku was set to the melody of Allah Lanjutkan Usia Sultan.

Lyrics[edit]

Malay Translation
Allah Lanjutkan Usia Sultan
Dilanjutkan Allah usianya Sultan
Adil dan murah memerintah watan
Ditaati rakyat kiri dan kanan
Iman yang soleh Allah kurniakan
Allah berkati Perak Ridzuan
Allah selamatkan Negeri dan Sultan.
A long life may God grant to our Sultan
Reigning just and kind o'er the land!
We shall obey his every command
May our faith be true, by Allah's hand
O God almighty, bless Perak adobe of grace
God save our state, God save our Sultan!
