My country is my love,
To whom I’ve given my heart.
To you I sing, my greatest happiness,
My flowering Estonia!
Your pain boils in my heart,
Your pride and joy makes me happy,
My country, my country!

My country is my love,
I shall never leave her,
Even if I must die hundred deaths
Because of for her!
Does the foreign envy slander,
You still live in my heart,
My country, my country!

My country is my love,
And I want to rest,
To lay down into your arms,
My sacred Estonia!
Your birds will sing sleep to me,
flowers will bloom from my ashes,
My country, my country!
