Land der Hämmer, zukunftsreich.
Heimat, großer Töchter und Söhne,

Vielgerühmtes Österreich, Vielgerühmtes Österreich!

Liegst dem Erdteil du inmitten
Einem starken Herzen gleich.
Hast seit Frühen Ahnentagen
Hoher Sendung last getragen,
Vielgeprüftes Österreich, Vielgeprüftes Österreich.

Frei und gläubig sieh uns schreiten,

1. Land of mountains, land on the River,
Land of fields, land of spires,
Land of hammers, with a rich future,
Home of great daughters and sons,
A nation blessed by its sense of beauty,
Highly praised Austria, highly praised Austria.

2. Strongly fought for, fiercely contested,
You are in the centre of the Continent
Like a strong heart,
You have born since the earliest days
The burden of a high mission
Much tried Austria, much tried Austria.

3. Watch us striding free and believing,
With courage, into new eras,
Working cheerfully and full of hope,
In jubilant chorus let us take in unity
The oath of allegiance to you, our country,
Our much beloved Austria, our much beloved Austria.
