Woven from 100 flowers, we are garland Nepali,
Sovereignly extended from Mechi to Mahakali. [Repeat] Woven from 100 flowers, we are garland Nepali,
Sovereignly extended from Mechi to Mahakali. Millions of natural beauties, history like a shawl,
Bloods of the braves make it free and immotile. Land of peace, knowledge in the plains, hills and mountains,
One-piece beloved country, motherland Nepal. Multi Races, languages, religions, cultures,
Progressive nation, I salute Nepalaa… The peaceful banks of the Ipiranga
Heard the resounding cry of an heroic people, And the dazzling rays of the sun of Liberty
Bathed our country in their brilliant light. If with strong arm we have succeeded
In winning a pledge of equality, In thy bosom, O Liberty,
Our hearts will defy death itself! O adored Fatherland,
Cherished and revered,
All hail! All Hail! Brazil, an intense dream, a vivid ray
Of love and hope descends to earth Where in your clear, pure, beauteous skies
The image of the Southern Cross shines forth. O country vast by nature,
Fair and strong, brave and colossus,
Thy future mirrors this thy greatness. O land adored
Above all others,
‘Tis thee Brazil,
Beloved Fatherland! Of the sons of this ground
Thou art kind mother,
Beloved homeland,
Brazil! Brothers of Italy,
Italy has woken, bound Scipio’s helmet
Upon her head. Where is Victory?
Let her bow down, Because, as a slave of Rome,
God created her. Brothers of Italy,
Italy has woken, with Scipio’s helmet
Upon her head. Where is Victory?
Let her bow down, For God has made her Rome’s Slave. Let us join in a cohort,
we are ready to die. We are ready to die,
Italy has called. Let us join in a cohort,
We are ready to die. We are ready to die,
Italy has called! Yes! O Canada!
Our home and native land! True patriot love, in all of us 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 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 rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there; O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave. Thou art, the ruler of our minds, of all people
The dispenser of India’s destiny! Thy name rouses the heart of Punjab, Sindh, Gujarat, Maratha, Dravida, Odisha and Bengal; It echoes in the hills of Vindhya and the Himalayas, and mingles in the music of Ganga and Yamuna and is chanted by the waves of the Indian sea. The pray for thy blessings and sing thy praise. The saving of all people waits in thy hands, Thou dispenser of India’s destiny. Victory, Victory, Victory to thee. 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 our God arise Scatter her enemies
And make them fall Confound their politics
Frustrate their knavish tricks On Thee our hopes we fix
God save the Queen. Arise, children of the Fatherland,
The day of glory has arrived! Against us, tyranny’s
Bloody standard is raised, Do you hear, in the countryside,
The roar of those ferocious soldiers? They’re coming right into your arms
To cut the throats of your sons, your women! To arms, citizens,
Form your battalions, Let’s march, let’s march! Let an impure blood
Water our furrows! To arms, citizens,
Form your battalions, Let’s march, let’s march! Let an impure blood
Water our furrows! Unity and justice and freedom
For the German fatherland! Towards these let us all strive
Brotherly with heart and hand! Unity and justice and freedom
Are the foundation of happiness; Flourish in the radiance of this happiness,
Flourish, German fatherland! [Repeat] Flourish in the radiance of this happiness,
Flourish, German fatherland! May the holy land, stay glad;
Beautious realm, stay glad. Thou, the sign of high resolve—
O Land of Pakistan! Citadel of faith, stay glad. Order of the holy land,
Power of fraternity of the populace; The nation, country, and domain;
Ever luminous remain! The cherished goal, stay glad. Flag with the star and crescent,
The leader of progress and ascent, Dragoman of past, the pride of present;
Soul of the future! Shadow of the God of grandeur. the Earth to its center shall tremble
when the cannon’s deep roar rends the air. [Repeat] the Earth to its center shall tremble
when the cannon’s deep roar rends the air. Oh my country entwine on thy temples
boughs of olive so fresh and so vernal, when inscribed in the heavens eternal
blessed peace for all the land thou dost see. But if stranger and foe in their boldness
dare to tread on thy soil, they must perish, then, oh my country, this thought only cherish
every son is but a soldier for thee. [Repeat] Russia – our sacred state,
Russia – our beloved country. A mighty will, a great glory –
Yours forever for all time! Be glorious, our free Fatherland,
Ancient union of brotherly peoples, Ancestor-given wisdom of the people!
Be glorious, our country! We are proud of you! From the southern seas to the polar lands
Spread are our forests and fields. You are unique in the world, one of a kind –
This native land protected by God! Be glorious, our free Fatherland,
Ancient union of brotherly peoples, Ancestor-given wisdom of the people!
Be glorious, our country! We are proud of you!
