Austria National Anthem

Austria National Anthem
Land of the mountains, land on the river (Land der Berge, Land am Strome)

Lyrics
Land of mountains, land on the stream,
Land of fields, land of cathedrals,
Land of hammers, with a promising future,
You are home to great sons,
A nation thrice blessed with beauty,
Much-praised Austria,
Much-praised Austria!

Strongly feuded for, fiercely hard-fought for,
You lie in the middle of the Continent
Like a strong heart,
Since the early days of the ancestors you have
Borne the burden of a high mission,
Much tried Austria,
Much tried Austria.

Bravely towards the new ages
See us striding, free, and faithful,
Assiduous and full of hope,
Unified, in fraternal choirs, let us
Pledge allegiance to you, Fatherland
Much beloved Austria,
Much beloved Austria.
