Nationalhymne Deutschland / Anthem Germany


The text of the anthem is the third stanza of the poem The Song of the Germans , written by August Heinrich Hoffmann von Fallersleben in 1841 on Helgoland .

Unity and justice and freedom
for the German fatherland
Let us all strive
Brotherly with heart and hand!
unity, justice and freedom
are the pledge of happiness:
|: Flourish in this blessing's glory,
flourish, German fatherland!: |

The melody comes from the Kaiser song by Joseph Haydn ( Hoboken XXVIa: 43 ), composed in 1796/97 in Vienna .
