Luxembourg National Anthem
Our Homeland

Where the Alzette slowly flows,
The Sauer plays wild pranks,
Where fragrant vineyards amply grow
On the Mosella's banks;
There lies the land for which we would
Dare everything down here,
Our own, our native land which ranks
Deeply in our hearts.
Our own, our native land which ranks
Deeply in our hearts.

O Thou above whose powerful hand
Makes States or lays them low,
Protect this Luxembourger land
From foreign yoke and woe.
Your spirit of liberty bestow
On us now as of yore.
Let Freedom's sun in glory glow
For now and evermore.
Let Freedom's sun in glory glow
For now and evermore.

Official English Translation
(1) Where the Alzette flows through the meadows
The Sura bathes the rocks;
Where the Moselle, smiling and beautiful
We made a present of wine
This is our country for which
We risk everything on earth;
Our homeland and adorable home
Our soul which is fulfilled.
Our homeland and adorable home
Our soul which is fulfilled.
(2) In its dark wood crown
always guarded by peace,
So without pomp and splendor expensive
Comfortable love laughing.
His people can say is happy
And there is no empty dreams:
How nice life here but,
how far is it from home.
How nice life here but,
how far is it from home.
(3) Singing, singing, mountain and valley
The earth that bore us,
The "love has a faithful echo
conducted in each breast.
For a country way too good
Every word that sounds out of it,
Take the soul as sky tome
And our eyes shining like fire.
Take the soul as sky tone
And our eyes shining like fire.
(4) O Thou in heaven that night and day
Leads the nation in the world;
Excludes the country of Luxembourg
The foreign oppression
Children we have received from you
The spirit of liberty;
Let the sun of freedom
To shine forever.
Let the sun of freedom
To shine forever.

Interesting facts
Luxembourg is the world’s only Grand Duchy. The ruler is Grand Duke Henri.

The only country with a higher Gross Domestic Product per capita than Luxembourg is Qatar.

Luxembourg covers an area of 998 square miles, making it slightly smaller than Oxfordshire.

In 1443, Elisabeth, Duchess of Luxembourg, sold the country to Philip the Good of Burgundy.

Philip may not have been as Good as his name suggests: he had at least 24 known mistresses and 18 illegitimate children.

Luxembourg has three official languages: French, German and Luxemburgish (or Luxembourgeois). Around 346,000 people around the world speak Luxembourgish.

Nearly 40 per cent of the population of Luxembourg are immigrants; 15 per cent of them are of Portuguese origin.

When giving someone flowers in Luxembourg it is customary to give an odd number, but not 13.

Luxembourg has won two medals at the Summer Olympics and two at the Winter Olympics.

Their only gold medal was for the 1,500 metres at the 1952 Olympics in Helsinki, won by Josy Barthel, who later became a government minister.
