Finlandia
Jean Sibelius Lyrics


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!

A large group of Russian soldiers in the border area in 1939 are moving down a road when they hear a voice call from behind a small hill: "One Finnish soldier is better than ten Russian".

The Russian commander quickly orders 10 of his best men over the hill where Upon a gun-battle breaks out and continues for a few minutes, then silence.

The voice once again calls out: "One Finn is better than one hundred Russian."

Furious, the Russian commander sends his next best 100 troops over the hill and instantly a huge gun fight commences.

After 10 minutes of battle, again Silence.

The calm Finnish voice calls out again:

"One Finn is better than one thousand Russians"

The enraged Russian commander musters

1000 fighters and sends them to the other side

of the hill. Rifle fire, machine guns, grenades,

rockets and cannon fire ring out as a terrible

battle is fought.... Then Silence.

Eventually one badly wounded Russian fighter crawls back over the hill and with his dying words tells his commander, "Don't send any more men......it's a trap. There's two of them."

Hyvää Sibeliuksen ja suomalaisen musiikin pöivää 8.12.2019 🇫🇮🎶🎺🎻🎵 tämän mestariteoksen pitäisi olla maamme kansallislaulu. Kukaan ei laula, vaan on hiljaa aloillaan koko mahtavan 9,5 minuuttia 👌🏼😂
