Koskenniemi, V. A.: Finlandia (Finlandia in English)

Portre of Koskenniemi, V. A.

Finlandia (Finnish)

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' seppelöimä suurten muistojen.

Oi, nouse, Suomi, näytit maailmalle,

Sa että karkoitit orjuuden,

Ja ettet taipunut sa sorron alle,

On aamus' alkanut, synnyinmaa.

Finlandia (English)

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 of 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 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!
