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)

O, Finland, behold, your day is dawning,

The threat of night has been banished away,

And the lark of morning in the brightness sings,

As though the very firmament would sing.

The powers of the night are vanquished by the morning light,

Your day is dawning, O land of birth.


O, rise, Finland, raise up high

Your head, wreathed with great memories.

O, rise, Finland, you showed to the world

That you drove away the slavery,

And that you did not bend under oppression,

Your day is dawning, O land of birth.
