Lyrics

 

The Aland Islands form an archipelago in the Baltic Sea. They are situated at the entrance to the Gulf of Bothnia and form an autonomous, demilitarised, monolingually Swedish-speaking region of Finland
Verse 1
The land of thousand islands and skerries,
Born from deep beneath the waves
Åland, our Åland, our home it is
Thee we long to meet
Ancient graves beneath the birches
Tells of our thousand year history
We will never forget the land of our Fathers
No matter where we will go
No matter where we will go
Verse 2
Lovely is our Åland when bays and straits
Become blue in the bright days of spring
It's delightful to wander in forest and grove
In the flowered fields of our shores.
Midsummer pole to evening red sky
Is raised by willing hands
Farthest out in the skerry fisher village
Beacons are lit by the young
Beacons are lit by the young
Verse 3
Lovely is our Åland when the froth of waves
is whirling against the mighty precipice
When the church folks steer beneath the stars
Over the icy depths of the sea
Even when storm roars, in the cottages' peace
The song of the spinning wheel is sung
The memory of loving childhood is
Happily praised by the sons
Happily praised by the sons
Verse 4
Never have Alandian women and men
Let the honour of their tribe down
Warfare threatened us, but victoriously yet
We carry the heritage of freedom
Loudly shall it sound, our Swedish language
Spoken with an urging voice
Enlighten our path like a sea mark of flames
Show us where we belong
Show us where we belong
