Hymn

Composer: Hanns Eisler Songwriter: Johannes R. Becher
Songtext:

1. Strophe
Risen from ruins
and turned towards the future,
let us serve you well,
Germany, united fatherland.
Old misery is to force,
and we force them united,
because we must succeed,
that the sun shines beautifully as never
over Germany.

2. Strophe
Happiness and peace be granted to
Germany, our fatherland.
All the world longs for peace,
extend your hand to the nations.
If we unite as brothers,
we beat the people's enemy.
Let the light of peace shine,
that never again a mother
weeps for her son.

3. Strophe
Let us plow, let us build,
learn and create as never before,
and trusting in our own strength,
a free generation rises.
German youth, best striving
of our people united in you,
you will be Germany's new life.
And the sun shines beautifully as never before
over Germany.
