National anthem of Cyprus

The lyrics of the National Anthem of Cyprus

Ὕμνος εἰς τὴν Ἐλευθερίαν

Σε γνωρίζω από την κόψη
Του σπαθιού την τρομερή,
Σε γνωρίζω από την όψη,
Που με βιά μετράει τη γη.

Απ’ τα κόκκαλα βγαλμένη
Των Ελλήνων τα ιερά,
Και σαν πρώτα ανδρειωμένη,
Χαίρε, ω χαίρε, ελευθεριά!
Και σαν πρώτα ανδρειωμένη,
Χαίρε, ω χαίρε, ελευθεριά!

Hýmnos is tin Eleftherían

Se gnorízo apó tin kópsi
Tou spathioú tin tromerí,
Se gnorízo apó tin ópsi,
Pou me viá metráei ti gi.

Ap’ ta kókkala vgalméni
Ton Ellínon ta ierá,
Kai san próta andreioméni,
Chaíre, o chaíre, eleftheriá!
Kai san próta andreioméni,
Chaíre, o chaíre, eleftheriá!

Hymn to Liberty

I shall always recognize you
by the dreadful sword you hold,
as the Earth with searching vision
you survey with spirit bold.

From the Greeks of old whose dying
brought to life and spirit free,
now with ancient valor rising
Let us hail you, oh Liberty!
now with ancient valor rising
Let us hail you, oh Liberty!

The National Anthem of Cyprus was written by Dionýsios Solomós and composed by Nikolaos Mantzaros.
