INNO LETTONIA

 

 

Wrote  in 1873, very soon became the National Anthem

 

Dievs, svti Latviju,

Mus' drgo tviju,

Svti jel Latviju,

Ak svti jel to!

Dievs, svti Latviju,

Mus' drgo tviju,

Svti jel Latviju,

Ak svti jel to!

 

 

Kur latvju meitas zied,

Kur latvju dli dzied,

Laid mums tur latm diet,

Ms Latvij.

Kur latvju meitas zied,

Kur latvju dli dzied,

Laid mums tur latm diet,

Ms Latvij.

Bless Latvia, O God,

Our verdant native land sod,

Where Baltic heroes trod,

Keep her from harm!

Our singing sons appear,

May Fortune smiling here

Grace Latvia!
