Anthem Lyrics

German



Trittst im Morgenrot daher,



Seh' ich dich im Strahlenmeer,



Dich, du Hocherhabener, Herrlicher!



Wenn der Alpen Firn sich rötet,



Betet, freie Schweizer, betet,



Eure fromme Seele ahnt



Gott im hehren Vaterland!



Gott, den Herrn, im hehren Vaterland!



 



French



Sur nos monts, quand le soleil



Annonce un brillant réveil,



Et prédit d'un plus beau jour le retour,



Les beautés de la patrie



Parlent à l'âme attendrie;



Au ciel montent plus joyeux



Les accents d'un coeur pieux,



Les accents émus d'un coeur pieux.



 



Italian



Quando bionda aurora



Il mattin c'indora,



L'alma mia t'adora



Re del Ciel.



Quando l'alpe già rosseggia



A pregare allor t'atteggia,



In favor del patrio suol,



Cittadino Iddio lo vuol,



Cittadino Dio, si Dio lo vuol.



 



Rumantsch (Ladin)



In l'aurora la daman



At cugnuoscha bain l'uman,



Spiert etern dominatur,



Tuot pussant!



Cur ils munts straglüschan sura,



Ura, liber Svizzer, ura.



Tia orma sainta ferm



Dieu in tschêl, il bap etern.



Dieu in tschêl, il bap, il bap etern.
