Maamme is Finland´s national anthem composed by Fredrik Pacius. It is a poem "Vårt Land" originally written in Swedish by Ludvig Runeberg.
Vårt land, vårt land, vårt fosterland,Ljud högt, o dyra ord!Ej lyfts en höjd mot himlens rand,Ej sänks en dal, ej sköljs en strand,Mer älskad än vår bygd i nord,Än våra fäders jord.
