#Finnish national anthem. (Oh our land, Suomi, our birthland. That golden word is ringing. No valley nor hill, no water nor shore that would be more dear, than this northern homeland. Precious land of our fathers.)

The first poem and eventual Finnish national anthem, Maamme, of which Mu isamaa, mu õnn ja rõõm is an adaptation. Illustrated by Albert Edelfelt.
