@SkeligMichael You speak with forked tongue, split personality, respectful and disrespectful, decent and indecent, intelligent and stupid. You need help. Maybe you should get out once in a while. What you really need, though, is forgiveness of sins. You have much bitterness in your heart. I pity you, and would like to help, but you must want it. I will not violate your free will. You have freedom to choose life or death. True freedom is obtained only through faith in Jesus Christ. He is the only one who could possibly pay the infinite price we all owe for sinning against the infinite God. And He did pay that price when He, as God, manifest in flesh, died on the cross, physically, then His soul travailed in hell. But being the infinite God veiled in flesh, He could pay for all the sins of mankind. So He alone can offer forgiveness of sins and eternal life to all as a free gift. But He won't force it on anyone. We must choose to believe on Him. That's all He requires of us. If we do not believe, we are damned to pay the infinite debt ourselves in the lake of fire, and that is everlasting. So choose life, or suffer infinite loss and death.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

If you reject Him, that's your choice. Perhaps others will read and be saved. That is my prayer.

Even though the english lyrics shown here in the video somewhat represent what is being said, the official translation by Keith Bosley shows the lyrical beauty of Finlandia pretty well. It always brings tears to my eyes when the singing starts.

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!

You know its a good piece when it makes you feel patriotic for a country that's not your own.

@Frank Eggers You LDS?

My former youth orchestra director was 100% Finnish, and we played this for his last concert. He spoke to us for a few minutes before we played, and he actually started tearing up, which was really sweet. I hope to play this piece again, because of all the history behind it.


@posti laatikko I'm a finn and guess what? I give my permission for anyone to enjoy it however they want.

Raimo Leppaniemi

This opus 26 tells all about the mind of the Finnish people. It gives an answer to the question why we Finns have survived no matter what adversaries we have had before us.

This is how it's supposed to be played! There are many version of this by different orchestras. They all seem to lack the certain (Finnish) sentiment. This piece isn't supposed to be joyful, but a bit sad, yet still strong. Excellent.

Ward Dorrity

The Finns are a tough and determined people who have been through much. An admirable culture.


@guanoapes The beginning literally represents the Russian oppression over Finland.

I wish I could have seen you conduct an orchestra. Fox 🦊
