Russian Anthem

Russia-our sacred state,

Russia-our beloved country.

A mighty will, a great glory

Are yours forever for all time!

Be glorious, our free Fatherland,
Ancient union of brotherly peoples,
Ancestor given wisdom of the people!
Be glorious, country! We are proud of you!

From the southern seas to the polar region

Lie our forests and our fields.

You are one in the world! You are one of a kind,

Native land protected by God!
Wide spaces for dreams and for living

Are open to us by the coming years.

Our faith in our Fatherland gives us strength.

So it was, so it is, and so it will always be!

Star Spangled Banner
Oh, say! can you see by the dawn's early light

What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming;

Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,

O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?

And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,

Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there:

Oh, say! does that star-spangled banner yet wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,

Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,

What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,

As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?

Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,

In fully glory reflected now shines in the stream:

'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh, long may it wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore

That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion

A home and a country should leave us no more?

Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution!

No refuge could save the hireling and slave

From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:

And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Oh, thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand

Between their loved home and the war's desolation!

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land

Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!

Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,

And this be our motto: "In God is our trust":

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Oh Canada!
O Canada! Our home and native land!

True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,

The True North strong and free!

From far and wide, O Canada,

We stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land, glorious and free!

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee;

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada! Where pines and maples grow,

Great prairies spread and Lordly rivers flow!

How dear to us thy broad domain,

From East to Western sea!

The land of hope for all who toil,

The true North strong and free!

God keep our land, glorious and free.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
O Canada! Beneath thy shining skies,

May Stalwart sons, and gentle maidens rise.

To keep thee steadfast thro’ the years,

From East to Western sea.

Our own beloved native land,

Our true North strong and free!

God keep our land, glorious and free.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
Ruler supreme, who hearest humble prayer,

Hold our Dominion, in thy loving care.

Help us to find, O God, in thee,

A lasting rich reward.

As waiting for the better day,

We ever stand on guard.

God keep our land, glorious and free.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
God Save the Queen
God save our gracious Queen,

Long live our noble Queen,

God save the Queen!

Send her victorious,

Happy and glorious,

Long to reign over us,

God save the Queen!
O lord God arise,

Scatter our enemies,

And make them fall!

Confound their knavish tricks,

Confuse their politics,

On you our hopes we fix,

God save the Queen!
Not in this land alone,

But be God's mercies known,

From shore to shore!

Lord make the nations see,

That men should brothers be,

And form one family,

The wide world ov'er
From every latent foe,

From the assasins blow,

God save the Queen!

O'er her thine arm extend,

For Britain's sake defend,

Our mother, prince, and friend,

God save the Queen!
Thy choicest gifts in store,

On her be pleased to pour,

Long may she reign!

May she defend our laws,

And ever give us cause,

To sing with heart and voice,

God save the Queen!
La Marseillaise

French National Anthem

La Marseillaise

Let's go children of the fatherland,

The day of glory has arrived!

Against us tyranny's

Bloody flag is raised! (repeat)

In the countryside, do you hear

The roaring of these fierce soldiers?

They come right to our arms

To slit the throats of our sons, our friends!


Grab your weapons, citizens!
Form your batallions!
Let us march! Let us march!
May impure blood
Water our fields!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

This horde of slaves, traitors, plotting kings,

What do they want?

For whom these vile shackles,

These long-prepared irons? (repeat)

Frenchmen, for us, oh! what an insult!

What emotions that must excite!

It is us that they dare to consider

Returning to ancient slavery!

What! These foreign troops

Would make laws in our home!

What! These mercenary phalanxes

Would bring down our proud warriors! (repeat)

Good Lord! By chained hands

Our brows would bend beneath the yoke!

Vile despots would become

The masters of our fate!

Tremble, tyrants! and you, traitors,

The disgrace of all groups,

Tremble! Your parricidal plans

Will finally pay the price! (repeat)

Everyone is a soldier to fight you,

If they fall, our young heros,

France will make more,

Ready to battle you!

Frenchmen, as magnanimous warriors,

Bear or hold back your blows!

Spare these sad victims,

Regretfully arming against us. (repeat)

But not these bloodthirsty despots,

But not these accomplices of Bouillé,

All of these animals who, without pity,

Tear their mother's breast to pieces!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Sacred love of France,

Lead, support our avenging arms!

Liberty, beloved Liberty,

Fight with your defenders! (repeat)

Under our flags, let victory

Hasten to your manly tones!

May your dying enemies

See your triumph and our glory!


We will enter the pit

When our elders are no longer there;

There, we will find their dust

And the traces of their virtues. (repeat)

Much less eager to outlive them

Than to share their casket,

We will have the sublime pride

Of avenging them or following them!


Germany, Germany over all

Over everything in the world!

When it comes to protecting and defending,

Our unity unites us.

From the Maas to the Memel

From the Etsch to the Belt,

Germany, Germany over all

Over everything in the world!
German wives and fidelity,

German wine and melody

Shall all persevere in the world.

Their fair and ancient tone,

Resounds in us our noble goal

Throughout our entire lives.
German women, German trueness

German beer,and German chorus!

Unity, justice, and liberty

For the Fatherland!
Let us all strive for that

In brotherhood with heart and hand!

Unity, justice, and liberty

Are the foundation for happiness;

Bloom in the radiance of this happiness,

Flourish, 'O Fatherland!

The Islamic Republic of Iran

Upwards on the horizon rises the Eastern Sun

The light in the eyes of the believers in justice

The Month of Bahman is the brilliance of our faith.

Your message, O Imam, of independence, freedom, is imprinted on our souls

O Martyrs! Your clamours echo in the ears of time:

Enduring, continuing, and eternal,

A homeland that extended its wings over the horizon,

And wore the glory of civilization as a garment--

Blessed be the land of the two rivers,

A homeland of glorious determination and tolerance.

This homeland is made of flame and splendour

And pride unequaled by the high heavens.

It is a mountain that rises above the tops of the world

And a plain that embodies our pride.

Babylon is inherent in us and Assyria is ours,

And because of the glory of our background

History itself radiates with light,

And it is we alone who possess the anger of the sword

And the patience of the prophets.

Oh company of al-Ba'th, you pride of lions,

Oh pinnacle of pride and of inherited glory,

Advance, bringing terror, to a certain victory

And resurrect the time of al-Rashid in our land!

We are a generation who give all and toil to the utmost.

Oh expanse of glory, we have returned anew

To a nation that we build with unyielding determination.

And each martyr follows in the footsteps of a former martyr.

Our mighty nation is filled with pride and vigour

And the comrades build the fortresses of glory.

Oh Iraq, may you remain forever a refuge for all the Arabs

And be as suns that turn night into day!

Land of mountains, land of streams,

Land of fields, land of spires,

Land of hammers, with a rich future,

You are the home of great sons,

A nation blessed by its sense of beauty,

Highly praised Austria.


Strongly fought for, fiercely contested,

You are in the centre of the Continent

Like a strong heart,

You have borne since the earliest days

The burden of a high mission,

Much tried Austria.


Watch us striding free and believing,

With courage, into new eras,

Working cheerfully and full of hope,

In fraternal chorus let us take in unity

The oath of allegiance to you, our country,

Our much beloved Austria.
