La Espero

From Academic Kids

"La Espero" ("the hope") is a poem written by L. L. Zamenhof (1859-1917), the initiator of the Esperanto language. The song is often used as the anthem of Esperanto, and is now usually sung to music composed by Flicien Menu de Mnil.

Listen to MP3 audio (http://www.wikipedia.com/upload/LaEspero.MP3) by the Esperanto band, Akordo. You may also listen to MIDI audio of the anthem.

La Espero

En la mondon venis nova sento,
   tra la mondo iras forta voko;
per flugiloj de facila vento
   nun de loko flugu ĝi al loko.
Ne al glavo sangon soifanta
   ĝi la homan tiras familion:
al la mond' eterne militanta
   ĝi promesas sanktan harmonion.

Sub la sankta signo de l' espero
   kolektiĝas pacaj batalantoj,
kaj rapide kreskas la afero
   per laboro de la esperantoj.
Forte staras muroj de miljaroj
   inter la popoloj dividitaj;
sed dissaltos la obstinaj baroj,
   per la sankta amo disbatitaj.

Sur neŭtrala lingva fundamento,
   komprenante unu la alian,
la popoloj faros en konsento
   unu grandan rondon familian.
Nia diligenta kolegaro
   en laboro paca ne laciĝos,
ĝis la bela sonĝo de l' homaro
   por eterna ben' efektiviĝos.

The Hope

Into the world came a new feeling,
   through the world goes a powerful call;
by means of wings of a gentle wind
   now let it fly from place to place.
Not to the sword thirsting for blood
   does it draw the human family:
to the world eternally fighting
   it promises sacred harmony.

Under the sacred sign of the hope
   the peaceful people who battle collect themselves,
and this affair quickly grows
   by the labours of those who hope.
The walls of millennia stand firm
   between the divided peoples;
but the stubborn barriers will jump apart,
   knocked apart by the sacred love.

On a neutral language basis,
   understanding one another,
the people will make in agreement
   one great family circle.
Our diligent set of colleagues
   in peaceful labor will never tire,
until the beautiful dream of the humanity
   for eternal blessing is realized.
