Anthem Lyrics English
Fountain of Freedom, Source of Light
Where sovereignty and safety meet,
Safety and sovereignty May you ever combine!
You have lived among nations With title sublime,
Filling each heart, Sung by each tongue,
Your champion has risen And answered your call.
In my mouth And in my blood
Your breezes have stirred Both light and fire.
Up! my brethren, Strive for the highest.
We call to the world That we are here ready.
We salute as our emblem
God, Homeland, and King.
