Swiss National Anthem

Unofficial English transtlation:

When the morning skies grow red.  And over us their radiance shed.  Thou, O Lord, appeareth in their light! When the alps glow bright with splendor, Pray to God, to Him surrender! For you feel and understand That God dwelleth in this land. That God, the Lord, dwelleth in this land.
