Hymn – Malta

The National anthem from malt has the name of “L-Innu Malti”, its creator was a well-known Maltese poet, Dum Karm Psaila, the first time it was presented to the public was on February 3, 1923. But it was still declared National Anthem in 1945.

The version the Maltese says the following:

Lil din l-art ħelwa, l-Omm li tatna isimha,
Ħares, Mulej, kif dejjem Int ħarist:
Ftakar li lilha bl-oħla dawl libbist.
Agħti, kbir Alla, id-dehen lil min jaħkimha,
Rodd il-ħniena lis-sid, saħħa ‘l-ħaddiem:
Seddaq il-għaqda fil-Maltin u s-sliem.

And in Spanish it reads like this:

Keep it, oh Lord, as you have always done,
This homeland so dear whose name we bear!
Keep in mind, who have you made so beautiful!
That with the rules wisdom be respected,
May mercy and strength in men grow!
Trust us in unity and peace!
