Nationalhymne Schweiz Schweizerpsalm ✠ [Swiss anthem][+ english translation]

The Swiss Psalm is the national anthem of Switzerland.

It was composed in 1841, by Alberich Zwyssig (1808–1854). Since then, it has been frequently sung at patriotic events. The Federal Council declined however on numerous occasions to accept the psalm as the official anthem. This was because the council wanted the people to express their say on what they wanted as a national anthem. From 1961 to 1981 it provisionally replaced Rufst du, mein Vaterland („When You Call, My Country“, French Ô monts indépendants; Italian Ci chiami o patria, Romansh E clomas, tger paeis), the anthem by Johann Rudolf Wyss (1743–1818) which was set to the melody of God Save the Queen. On 1 April 1981, the Swiss Psalm was declared the official Swiss national anthem.

In 2014/2015, the Société suisse d’utilité publique organized a public competition and unofficial vote to change the lyrics of the national anthem.
