If you talk about the full text version of the original poem, the Greek national anthem is certainly the longest: It has 158 verses. However, only the first two ones were officially adopted as the national anthem.

Talking about a single stanza, it depends again on the structure of the text: For example some African national anthems (for example Burundi) have relatively long text versions which are not clearly structured into verses and chorus. Mayby you take a look in the different Lyrics and Sheet music chapters and count the letters

In many sources, the national anthem of Argentina is mentioned as the one with the longest duration of music. However, the national anthems of El Salvador, Uruguay, Marshall Islands, South Africa and Vatican City State are not much shorter; it might also depend a bit on how fast they are played.

Greece has the longest national anthem in the world. It has 158 stanzas, written by the poet Dionysios Solomos (although the cut-down version is shorter than Uruguays, which is more than five minutes long).
