81 Slovenia Slovenia Slovenia, officially the Republic of Slovenia, is a nation state in southern Central Europe, located at the crossroads of main European cultural and trade routes.

God's blessing on all nations,
Who long and work for that bright day,
When o'er earth's habitations
No war, no strife shall hold its sway;
'Who long to see
That all men free,
No more shall foes, but neighbours be.

Original text is better, but English translation is done that way to suit original music and rhyme.

This anthem is very beautiful. Its meaning is deep and it also does not put only one nation first but all. It tells us to live in peace and be happy for others. Love from Italy!

It sings about every single person on Earth. It does notbput one nation first or speak ill of foreigners. It tells us to love and live in peace. It does not mention nationalism or religion. I love my anthem.

Beyond nationalism... towards humanity!

87 Trinidad and Tobago Trinidad and Tobago Trinidad and Tobago, officially the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, is a twin island country situated off the northern edge of South America mainland, lying 11 kilometres just off the coast of northeastern Venezuela and 130 kilometres south of Grenada.

There is a change in key set so perfectly nearing the end of the anthem. Its lyrically inspiring and musically just genius. I've listened to 100 plus anthems and I must say Trinidad and Tobago's national anthem is the best.

Musically exquisite and tremendously inspiring. Perfectly depicts the diversity of this beautiful twin island where EVERY creed and race finds an equal place!

Our anthem encompasses our diverse population. "Where every creed and race find an equal place". It is beautiful and truly makes you proud to be a trinidadian

95 Cameroon Cameroon

O Cameroon, Thou Cradle of our Fathers, Holy Shrine where in our midst they now repose, Their tears and blood and sweat thy soil did water, On thy hills and valleys once their tillage rose. Dear Fatherland, thy worth no tongue can tell! How can we ever pay thy due? Thy welfare we will win in toil and love and peace, Will be to thy name ever true! Chorus: Land of Promise, land of Glory! Thou, of life and joy, our only store! Thine be honour, thine devotion, And deep endearment, for evermore.

The anthem says " Dear Fatherland, thy worth no tongue can tell and it also says Land of promise, Land of glory. It says everything about this beautiful nation Cameroon

Best anthem so far, well composed and always well sang. I feel proud every time I listen or take part in singing it.
