National anthem of Greece

The lyrics of the National Anthem of Greece

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 recognize you by the fearsome sharpness,
of the sword,
I recognize you by your face
that hastefully defines the land

From the sacred bones,
of the Hellenes arisen,
and valiant again as you once were,
Hail, o hail, Liberty!
and valiant again as you once were,
Hail, o hail, Liberty!

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

The motto of Greece: Freedom or Death.
