The new hymn text to the traditional melody is based on the Swiss core values expressed in the preamble of the Swiss Federal Constitution. As 500,000 Swiss abroad and residents in Switzerland are native English spea- kers, the new text has been translated not only into the four official Swiss languages but also into English. All Swiss clubs are invited to sing the new hymnal text at their federal celebrations on August 1.
