Dearest Country Mine
My native land, my joy, delight,
How fair thou art and bright!
And nowhere in the world all round
Can ever such a kingdom be found
So well beloved as I love thee,
My native country dear!
My little cradle stood on thy soil,
Whose blessings ease my toil.
With my last breath my thanks to thee,
For true to death I'll ever be,
O worthy, most beloved and fine,
Thou, dearest country mine!
May Goddess in Heaven thee defend,
My best, my dearest land!
May She be guard, may She be shield,
Forever may She bless and wield
O graciously all deeds of thine,
Thou dearest country mine!
