Switzerland National Anthem

German Version
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 Version
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 Version
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 (Latin) Version
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.

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

In the sunset Thou art nigh
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
For we feel and understand
That Thou dwellest in this land.
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 cower
With Thy sunshine's cleansing power
Then we'll feel and understand
Then we'll feel and understand
That God dwelleth in this land.
That God dwelleth in this land.

Media
 
Key social issues

We are sharing media in the country at the end of the country because media is the foundation of countries, as it shares what is happening in the country with the world.
Si image making or breaking of the country is as much with the hands of people & political parties as media from any country.

 

 
NGO Brands in the country will share key social issues in the country.
Remember, they will share only names of issues and stories related to that will be in the related social issue forum.
