1. Verse

Risen from ruins

and turned towards the future,

let us serve thee for good,

Germany, united fatherland.

Old adversity is to be forced

and we force them together,

for we must succeed

that the sun shines more beautifully than ever

shines over Germany.

2. Strophe

Happiness and peace be granted

Germany, our fatherland.

All the world longs for peace,

Reach out your hand to the nations.

If we unite as brothers,

we will defeat the enemy of the people.

Let the light of peace shine,

that never again a mother

weeps for her son.

3. Verse

Let us plow, let us build,

learn and create as never before,

and trusting in our own strength,

a free race rises up.

German youth, best striving

of our people united in you,

you will be Germany's new life.

And the sun, more beautiful than ever

shines over Germany.
