Whilst Ons Heemecht - Luxembourg National Anthem Vocal

submitted by Marvin's Underground Music Ondemand on 05/04/18 1

"Ons Heemecht" is the national anthem of Luxembourg. The title in Luxembourgish translates as Our Homeland. Michel Lentz wrote the words in 1859, and they were set to music by Jean Antoine Zinnen in 1864. The song was first performed in public in Ettelbruck, a town at the confluence of the Alzette and Sauer rivers (both of which are mentioned in the song), on 5 June 1864. Ons Heemecht was adopted as Luxembourg's national anthem in 1895. It was added as one of the official 'national emblems' (French: emblémes nationaux), alongside the national flag, national coat of arms, and the Grand Duke's Official Birthday, on 17 June 1993.[1] Whilst Ons Heemecht is the national anthem, the royal anthem, or more accurately the Grand Ducal anthem, is De Wilhelmus. This is not the same as Het Wilhelmus, the national anthem of the Netherlands. Luxembourg National Anthem Lyrics Luxembourg Ons H�m�cht (Our Motherland) Original Letzeburgesch Words Wo d'Uelzecht duerch d'Wisen ze't, D�rch d'Fielzen d'Sauer br�cht, Wo' d'Ref l�nscht d'Musel dofteg ble't, Den Himmel Wein ons m�cht: Dat ass onst Land, fir dat mer ge'f Heinidden alles won, Ons Hemeschtsland dat mir so' de'f An onsen Hierzer dron. (repeat previous two lines) O Du do uewen, dem seng Hand Durch d'Welt Natio'ne let, Behitt du d'L�tzeburger Land Vum frieme Joch a Led; Du hues ons all als Kanner schon De freie G�scht jo ginn, Loss viru bl�nken d'Freihetsonn, De' mir so' l�ng gesinn. (repeat previous two lines) English Translation: Where slow you see the Alzette flow, The Sura play wild pranks, Where lovely vineyards amply grow, Upon the Moselle's banks, There lies the land for which our thanks Are owed to God above, Our own, our native land which ranks Well foremost in our love. (repeat previous two lines) Oh Father in Heaven, Whose powerful hand Makes states or lays them low, Protect the Luxembourger land From foreign yoke and woe. God's golden liberty bestow On us now as of yore. Let Freedom's sun in glory glow For now and evermore. (repeat previous two lines)
