The Bohemian National Hymn, My Fatherland

 

Where is my home?
Where is my home?
Waters thro' its meads are streaming,
Mounts with rustling woods are teeming.
Vales are bright with flowrets rare,
Oh, earth's Eden, thou are fair!
Land of beauty, dear Bohemia,
Thou art my home, my fatherland!
Thou art my home, my fatherland!

Where is my home?
Where is my home?
By the Towers of God 'tis bounded;
By the noblest sons surrounded;
True and light of heart are they,
Firm and bold in deadly fray,
Offspring grand of dear Bohemia,
Thou art my home, my fatherland!
Thou art my home, my fatherland!

—From the Chicago University Settlement Song Book.
