Luxembourger National Anthem Lyrics in Luxembourgish

1. Wou d’Uelzecht durech d’Wisen zéit,
duerch d’Fielsen d’Sauer brécht.
Wou d’Rief laanscht d’Musel dofteg bléit,
den Himmel Wäin ons mécht –
dat ass onst Land, fir dat mir géif
hei nidden alles won.
Onst Heemechtsland, dat mir sou déif
an onsen Hierzer dron.
Onst Heemechtsland, dat mir sou déif
an onsen Hierzer dron.

2. O Du do uewen, deem seng Hand
duerch d’Welt d’Natioune leet,
behitt Du d’Lëtzebuerger Land
vru friemem Joch a Leed!
Du hues ons all als Kanner schonn
de fräie Geescht jo ginn.
Looss virublénken d’Fräiheetssonn,
déi mir sou laang gesinn!
Looss virublénken d’Fräiheetssonn,
déi mir sou laang gesinn!

Luxembourger National Anthem Lyrics Meaning in English

1. Where the Alzette flows through the meadows,
The Sura breaks through the crags.
Where the vine fragrant grows along the Moselle,
The sky promises us wine:
There lies the land for which we willingly
Dare everything down here.
Our homeland which we so deeply
Carry in our hearts.
Our homeland which we so deeply
Carry in our hearts.

2. O Thou above, Whose powerful hand
Leads the nations through the world,
Protect the Luxembourg land
From foreign yoke and threat.
As children Thou already instilled in us all
The spirit of freedom.
Let freedom’s sun, which we have known for so long,
Shine for evermore.
Let freedom’s sun, which we have known for so long,
Shine for evermore.
