Anthem Lyrics

MU ISAMAA MU ÕNN JA RÕÕM



Mu isamaa, mu õnn ja rõõm,


kui kaunis oled sa!


Ei leia mina iial teal


see suure, laia ilma peal,

mis mul nii armas oleks ka,

kui sa, mu isamaa!

Sa oled mind ju sünnitand

ja üles kasvatand;

sind tänan mina alati

ja jään sull’ truuiks surmani,

mul kõige armsam oled sa,

mu kallis isamaa!

Su üle Jumal valvaku,

mu armas isamaa!

Ta olgu sinu kaitseja

ja võtku rohkest õnnista,

mis iial ette võtad sa,

mu kallis isamaa!

Anthem Lyrics English

Unofficial translation of the Estonian anthem by Jenny Wahl


My native land, my joy, delight,


How fair thou art and bright!


And nowhere in the world all round


Can ever such a place be found


So well beloved as I love thee,


My native country dear!


My little cradle stood on thy soil,


Whose blessings case 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 God in Heaven thee defend, My best, my dearest land!



May He be guard, may He be shield, For ever may He bless and wield O
graciously all deeds of thine, Thou dearest country mine!
