On the occasion of Malta’s Independence Day, on Monday 21 September 2020, choir ‘Cappella Sanctae Catharinae’ has recorded Malta’s national anthem.

Lyrics:

Lil din l-art ħelwa, l-Omm li tatna isimha,
Ħares, Mulej, kif dejjem Int ħarist:
Ftakar li lilha bil-oħla dawl libbist.
Agħti, kbir Alla, id-dehen lil min jaħkimha,
Rodd il-ħniena lis-sid, saħħa ‘l-ħaddiem:
Seddaq il-għaqda fil-Maltin u s-sliem.

(English translation)
Guard, Lord, forever, as you’ve done erst and ceasing never,
This land whose name we received, our motherly-named Mother.
Her you have draped with a light whose grace exceeds all other.
On those who govern, sovereign God, bestow understanding,
Grant wellness to those who work, largesse to those employing,
Make firm, make just all our bonds, the peace we are enjoying.

Composed by Robert Sammut / Lyrics: Dun Karm Psaila

This musical performance was brought to you by The St John’s Co-Cathedral Foundation.
