Track Name: Oben am jungen Rhein
High above the young Rhine
Lies Liechtenstein, resting
On Alpine heights.
This beloved homeland,
This dear fatherland
Was chosen for us by
God's wise hand.

Long live Liechtenstein,
Blossoming on the young Rhine,
Happy and faithful!
Long live the Prince of the Land,
Long live our fatherland,
United by brotherly bonds and free!
Track Name: Nkulunkulu Mnikati wetibusiso temaSwati
O Lord our God, bestower of the blessings of the Swazi;
We give Thee thanks for all our good fortune;
We offer thanks and praise for our King,
And our fair land--its hills, its rivers.
Thy blessing be on all rulers of our Country;
Might and power are thine alone.
We pray Thee to grant us wisdom without deceit or malice.
Establish and fortify us, Lord Eternal.
Track Name: Dideba
დიდება ზეცით კურთხეულს,
დიდება ქვეყნად სამოთხეს,
ტურფა ივერსა,
დიდება ძმობას, ერთობას,
დიდება თავისუფლებას,
დიდება სამარადისო
ქართველ მხნე ერსა!
დიდება ჩვენსა სამშობლოს,
დიდება ჩვენი სიცოცხლის
მიზანს დიადსა;
ვაშა ტრფობასა, სიყვარულს,
ვაშა შვებასა, სიხარულს,
სალამი ჭეშმარიტების
შუქ-განთიადსა!

[English translation]

Praise be to the heavenly Bestower of Blessings,
Praise be to paradise on earth,
To the radiant Iberians,
Praise be to brotherhood and to unity,
Praise be to liberty,
Praise be to the everlasting,
lively Georgian people!
Praise be to our fatherland,
Praise be to the great and bright aim of our lives;
Hail, O joy and love,
Hail helpfulness and happiness,
Greetings to the truth, that light of dawn!
Track Name: Kassaman
We swear by the lightning that destroys,
By the streams of generous blood being shed,
By the bright flags that wave,
Flying proudly on the high djebels,
That we are in revolt, whether to live or to die,
We are determined that Algeria should live,
So be our witness -be our witness -be our witness!

We are soldiers in revolt for truth
And we have fought for our independence.
When we spoke, nobody listened to us,
So we have taken the noise of gunpowder as our rhythm
And the sound of machine guns as our melody,
We are determined that Algeria should live,
So be our witness -be our witness -be our witness!

From our heroes we shall make an army come to being,
From our dead we shall build up a glory,
Our spirits shall ascend to immortality
And on our shoulders we shall raise the Standard.
To the nation's Liberation Front we have sworn an oath,
We are determined that Algeria should live,
So be our witness -be our witness -be our witness!

The cry of the Fatherland sounds from the battlefields.
Listen to it and answer the call!
Let it be written with the blood of martyrs
And be read to future generations.
Oh, Glory, we have held out our hand to you,
We are determined that Algeria should live,
So be our witness -be our witness -be our witness!

Salve, Salve Roma, patria eterna di memorie,

Salve, Salve Roma, la tua luce non tramonta,
Vince l'odio e l'onta lo splendor di tua beltà.

Roma luce delle genti, il mondo spera in te!

Hail, O Rome, Eternal adobe of memories;
A thousand palms and a thousand altars sing your praises.

O city of the Apostles, Mother and guide of the elect,
Light of the nations, and hope of the world!

Hail, O Rome! Your light will never fade;
The splendour of your beauty disperses hatred and shame.

O city of the Apostles, Mother and guide of the elect,
Light of the nations, and hope of the world!

Let morning shine on the silver and gold of this land,
Three thousand li packed with natural wealth.

Brought up in a culture brilliant
With a history five millennia long.

To supporting this Korea forever.

The firm will, bonded with truth,
Nest for the spirit of labour,
Embracing the atmosphere of Mount Baekdu
Will go forth to all the world.

Breasting the raging waves with soaring strength.
Let us glorify forever this Korea,
Limitlessly rich and strong.

Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!
Allah! Allah! Allahu Akbar!

Oh world, look up and listen.
The enemy's army is coming, and wishing to destroy me!
With truth and with my gun, I shall repulse him.
Kulu mai! Kulu mai!

Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!
Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!

Allah! Allah! Allahu Akbar!
God is above the aggressors.
And should I be killed,
I would kill him with me!
Sing with me!
Woe to the imperialists,
And God is above the treacherous tyrant!
Allahu Akbar!
Therefore, glorify him, O my country,
And seize the forehead of the tyrant, and destroy him!

Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!
