State Anthem

State anthem is 7th stanza of the poem »Zdravljica« (A Toast), written by the poet France Prešeren, melody written by Stanko Premrl.

Anthem in Slovene:

Žive naj vsi narodi

ki hrepene dočakat' dan,

da koder sonce hodi,

prepir iz sveta bo pregnan,

da rojak

prost bo vsak, ne vrag, le sosed bo mejak!

Anthem in English:

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!
