Writing Sample


Where you see the slow Alzetta flow,
The Sura play wild pranks,
Where lovely vineyards amply grow
On the Moselle's banks,
There lies the land for which our thanks
Are owed to God above,
Our own, our native land which ranks
Well foremost in our love.

Our Father in Heaven whose powerful hand
Makes states or lays them low,
Protect Thy Luxembourger Land
From foreign foe or woe.
God's golden liberty bestow
On us now as of yore.
Let Freedom's sun in glory glow
For now and evermore.

—Our Homeland (Luxembourg National Anthem)
