Lyric
Country
O! say can you see by the dawn's early light
With glowing hearts we see thee rise / The True North strong and free!
God save our gracious Queen / Long live our noble Queen
This is the country of every tribe / The land of Balochs and Uzbeks / Pashtuns and Hazaras /
Turkmens and Tajiks
Beneath our radiant Southern Cross / We'll toil with hearts and hands
In Erin's cause, come woe or weal / 'Mid cannon's roar and rifles' peal / We'll chant a soldier's song
And onward, towards the ends of the east / An eye still gazes toward Zion
A prince of Orange / am I, free and fearless
Pity, God, the Magyar, then / Long by waves of danger tossed
Souls and bodies we'll lay down, all for our freedom / And we'll show that we, brothers,
are of the Cossack nation!
Arise! All those who don't want to be slaves! / Let our flesh and blood forge our new Great Wall!
From the bones arisen / of the Hellenes, the sacred
It echoes in the hills of the Vindhyas and Himalayas / Mingles in the music of Jamuna and Ganges
And the saga night that sends / dreams to our earth
You are the seat of Peter, whose blood was shed in Rome
Vile despots would have themselves / The masters of our destinies! / To arms, citizens
The gold star afluttering / Leading the people of our native land out of misery and suffering
From the southern seas to the polar lands / Lie our forests and fields

Actually the Norwegian national anthem never mentions the name of the nation in the first, most commonly sung verse: Yes, we love this land / as it thrusts forth / rugged, wind-beaten over the water / with its thousands of homes / Love it, love it and think / Of our fathers and mothers / And of the saga-night which lays / Dreams upon our earth.

Great quiz, but just so you know, the line you used for the Australian anthem is actually from the second verse that isn't often sung, so it might be a bit unfair for some if they don't know the whole thing...

The same with me. I found it a very easy quiz because of the clues in the songs. Vietnam was definitely the hardest, but didn't take long that either. I knew the Dutch one, French one (but not familiar with the English lyric), American and British ones. The rest was by the clues.

God Save the Queen is indeed the UK national anthem. In fact, while Scotland and Wales also have their own national anthems, England doesn't, so God Save the Queen is the usual default at, for example, sporting events. People have argued for 'Jerusalem', 'Land of Hope & Glory' and 'I Vow to Thee My Country' as candidates, but so far with no official bearing.

I know it agrees with Wikipedia, but "Spread are our forests and fields" doesn't make any sense. If you follow Wikipedia's citation for the lyrics, you'll see that that source actually says "Lie our forests and our fields" here. No "are"!

Oh dear this is embarrassing. I'm Canadian and yet nearly missed Canada altogether; I only ever hear the original French version (or the bilingual one sung at Habs games in which the first half is in French), and the French and English "Ô Canada" are two completely different songs. It was easier to guess the other countries, as those were literal tranlsations in English. Well, I'll go to bed a little less ignorant tonight.

The lyrics were never changed, but they avoid to use the verse with "Deutschland über alles". Anyway, that text is obviously Lutheran. On the other hand, the Marseillaise is a revolutionary song, with all the violence that implies...

Fun Fact: After the foundation of modern Germany, our first President Theo Heuss held a contest to find a better anthem for Germany, but all the submissions were so bad, that they just went with the most bland verse of that horribly song we have right now. East Germany hat a nice Anthem though.

If you're looking for a tricky one, here's Poland (crude translation): "we were given an example by Bonaparte how to win". Little people would have thought it's Poland, rather France or sth. The anthem comes from the very end of the 18th century, when Poland was annexed by Russia, Prussia and Austria (1795) and a bulk of Polish soldiers went to France to help Napoleon in his fight against these countries, hoping for the independence of Poland. Napoleon did introduced a semi-independent Polish duchy afterwards, but in the end nothing worked out.

There are so many beautiful anthems but for me, the Icelandic anthem is the most beautiful and haunting. "Iceland's thousand years, Iceland's thousand years: one small flower in eternity with a quivering tear, which worships its God and dies." I could be biased, though. :)
