Happy independence day to Finland, established 1917

I tried to learn the Finnish language, which is really, really, really hard, and I realized that if I want to really learn it, I just need to figure out the swear words first, because those, are totally effective” Gun Roswell

Our Land (national anthem)

Oh Our Land Finland Fatherland
Echo Loudly Golden Word
No Valley No Hill
No Water Shore More Dear
Than This Northern Homeland
This Precious Land Of Our Fathers
No Valley No Hill
No Water Shore More Dear
Than This Northern Homeland
This Precious Land Of Our Fathers
One Day From Your Bud
You Will Bloom
From Our Love Shall Rise
Your Hope Glorious Joy
And Once Your Song Fatherland
Higher Still Will Ring
From Our Love Shall Rise
Your Hope Glorious Joy
And Once Your Song Fatherland
Higher Still Will Ring

Vårt land

Vårt land, vårt land, vårt fosterland,
ljud högt, o dyra ord!
Ej lyfts en höjd mot himlens rand,
ej sänks en dal, ej sköljs en strand,
mer älskad än vår bygd i nord,
än våra fäders jord.

Vårt land är fattigt, skall så bli
för den, som guld begär,
en främling far oss stolt förbi;
men detta landet älska vi,
för oss med moar, fjäll och skär
ett guldland dock det är.

Vi älska våra strömmars brus
och våra bäckars språng,
den mörka skogens dystra sus,
vår stjärnenatt, vårt sommarljus,
allt, allt, vad här som syn, som sång
vårt hjärta rört en gång.

Maamme Laulu

Oi Maamme Suomi Synnyinmaa
Soi Sana Kultainen
Ei Laaksoa Ei Kukkulaa
Ei Vettä Rantaa Rakkaampaa
Kuin Kotimaa Tää Pohjoinen
Maa Kallis Isien
Ei Laaksoa Ei Kukkulaa
Ei Vettä Rantaa Rakkaampaa
Kuin Kotimaa Tää Pohjoinen
Maa Kallis Isien
Sun Kukoistukses Kuorestaan
Kerrankin Puhkeaa
Viel’ Lempemme Saa Nousemaan
Sun Toivos Riemus Loistossaan
Ja Kerran Laulus Synnyinmaa
Korkeemman Kaiun Saa
Viel’ Lempemme Saa Nousemaan
Sun Toivos Riemus Loistossaan
Ja Kerran Laulus Synnyinmaa
Korkeemman Kaiun Saa
