Lyrics

When the morning skies grow red
And o’er us their radiance shed,
Thou, O Lord, appearest in their light.
When the Alps glow bright with splendour,
Pray to God, to Him surrender,
For you feel and understand,
That He dwelleth in this land.

In the sunset Thou art night
And beyond the starry sky,
Thou, O loving Father, ever near.
When to Heaven we are departing,
Joy and bliss Thou’lt be imparting,
For we feel and understand
That Thou dwellest in this land.

When dark clouds enshroud the hills
And gray mist the valley fills,
Yet Thou art not hidden from Thy sons.
Pierce the gloom in which we cover
With Thy sunshine’s cleansing power
Then we’ll feel and understand
That God dwelleth in this land.

Towards us in the wild storm coming,
You yourself give us resistance and stronghold,
You, almighty ruling, rescuing!
During horror and nights of thunderstorms
Let us childlike trust Him!
Yes, we feel and understand;
Yes, we feel and understand
That God dwelleth in this land.

Flag History

The flag of Switzerland is one of the most typical European flags. In medieval times,
many European states used a plain flag with a cross. Adopted in 1889, this flag has a
red field with a white cross which was adopted from the flag of Schwyz, one of the original
three cantons. Along with the flag of the Vatican, the Swiss flag is the only other square national flag in existence.
