Oben am jungen Rhein (literally Up above the young Rhine) is the National Anthem of Liechtenstein since 1963, it was written in 1850 by patriot Jakob Josef Jauch and it shares the same melody as the United Kingdom's national anthem, "God Save the Queen", and Norway's royal anthem, Kongesangen.[1]

Lyrics

German:

Oben am jungen Rhein Lehnet sich Liechtenstein An Alpenhöh’n. Dies liebe Heimatland, Das teure Vaterland, Hat Gottes weise Hand Für uns erseh’n.

Hoch lebe Liechtenstein Blühend am jungen Rhein, Glücklich und treu. Hoch leb’ der Fürst vom Land, Hoch unser Vaterland, Durch Bruderliebe Band Vereint und frei.

English:

Up above the young Rhine Lies Liechtenstein, resting On Alpine heights. This beloved homeland, This dear fatherland Was chosen for us by God’s wise hand.

Long live Liechtenstein, Blossoming on the young Rhine, Fortunate and faithful! Long live the Prince of the Land, Long live our fatherland, Through bonds of brotherly love united and free!
