Ons Heemecht                                                    Our Homeland

 

Wou d'Uelzécht durech d'Wisen zéit,            Where the Alzette slowly flows,        

Duerch d'Fielsen d'Sauer brécht,                 The Sauer plays and pranks,

Wou d'Rief laanscht d'Musel dofteg bléit,      Where fragrant vineyards amply grow,

Den Himmel Wäin ons mécht:                     On the Mosella’s banks;

Dat as onst Land, fir dat mer géif                There lies the land for which we would

Hei nidden alles won,                                 Dare everything down here,

Ons Heemechtsland dat mir so déif              Our own, our native land which ranks

An onsen Hierzer dron.                               Deeply in our hearts.

Ons Heemechtsland dat mir so déif              Our own, our native land which ranks

An onsen Hierzer dron.                               Deeply in our hearts.
