Oi Suomi, katso, Sinun päiväs koittaa,
yön uhka karkoitettu on jo pois,
ja aamun kiuru kirkkaudessa soittaa
kuin itse taivahan kansi sois.
Yön vallat aamun valkeus jo voittaa,
sun päiväs koittaa, oi synnyinmaa.

Oi nouse, Suomi, nosta korkealle
pääs seppälöimä suurten muistojen,
oi nouse, Suomi, näytit maailmalle
sä että karkoitit orjuuden
ja ettet taipunut sä sorron alle,
on aamus alkanut, synnyinmaa.

Swedish translation by Joel Rundt.

O, Finland, se, din morgonljusning randas,
och natten skingras hotfullt mörk och lång.
Hör lärkans röst med rymdens susning blandas,
snart rymden fylles av jubelsång.
Se natten flyr och fritt du åter andas.
Din morgon ljusnar, o fosterland.

Stig högt, vårt land, som du ur natt dig höjde.
Den dag dig väntar, fritt och öppet möt
med samma kraft, med samma mod, du röjde,
när träldomsoket du sönderbröt.
Förtrycket aldrig dig till jorden böjde,
Ditt verk väntar, o fosterland.

English translation by Keith Bosley.

Finland, behold, thy daylight now is dawning,
the threat of night has now been driven away.
The skylark calls across the light of morning,
the blue of heaven lets it have its way,
and now the day the powers of night is scorning:
thy daylight dawns, O Finland of ours!

Finland, arise, and raise towards the highest
thy head now crowned with mighty memory.
Finland, arise, for to the world thou criest
that thou hast thrown off thy slavery,
beneath oppression's yoke thou never liest.
Thy morning's come, O Finland of ours!

One of the proudest people in Europe, and so they should be, not only for bravely fighting off for their homeland against the Russians but also because it's one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Greetings from Portugal!

EDIT: This is not a political comment. It's just an example of how brave Finns have always been throughout the ages, a true showcase of resilience, either against the harsh climate or against other countries who tried to invade them. All in defense of their survival and of their culture.

@Javier Salvador Everyone should at least have some nationalism within their thought process. Not too much but enough to be proud of their country's achievements.


@Elijah Well, if we didn't segregate ourselves into different countries, in which country would you have us all live? It is said that every person on Earth could be given a 1 acre or hectare lot of land in Texas, w/ room to spare. We are enriched by different cultures & languages, art, literature, perspectives. Some people would disappear if they didn't have a special enclave of their own where they can survive. for instance, where would the Estonians be w/o a country of their own.
I am sure you don't want to live in a big dormitory w/a bunch of strangers, you live a house or apartment of your own.


I wish the human race didn’t feel the need to segregate ourselves to different countries. But alas we’re just like every animal in the animal kingdom that claims territory.

They have indeed been very brave & yet remained open, generous & free. The true & good meaning of what it means to be liberal.

Taas on yksi Suomea puolustanut veteraani vähemmän. Oma isoukkini kuoli maanantaina 9.9.2019 ollessaan 95-vuotias, 🇫🇮💙😢.

@Juha xx mitä meinaat? Suomi oli silloin kauniimpi. Niin oli monet muutkin paitsi ex-nazi tai Neuvostoliiton maat. Suomi on kuitenkin top 5 parasta maata listassa ja parempi kuin moni muu. Se on meistä kiinni!🇫🇮🇫🇮🇫🇮🇫🇮
