The National anthem of Finland is "Maamme" which means in English "Our Land".
Finland's anthem lyrics were written by Johan Ludvig RUNEBERG and the music was written by Fredrik PACIUS.
In Use Since 1848; Although Never Officially Adopted By Law, The Anthem Has Been Popular Since It Was First Sung By A Student Group In 1848; Estonia's Anthem Uses The Same Melody As That Of Finland.

Finnish anthem lyrics (English translation)
Translation From The Finnish Version.
Oh our land, Finland, land of our birth,
rings out the golden word!
No valley, no hill,
no water, shore more dear
than this northern homeland,
precious land of our fathers.
(repeat last four lines)
Your splendour from its shell
one day will bloom;
From our love shall rise
your hope, glorious joy,
and once your song, fatherland
higher still will echo.
(repeat last four lines)
 
Translation From The Swedish Version.
Our land, our land, our Fatherland!
Ring out, dear word, oh sound!
No rising hill, or mountain grand,
No sloping dale, no northern strand,
There is, more loved, to be found,
Than this — our fathers’ ground!
(repeat last four lines)
Thy blossom, hidden now from sight,
Shall burst its bud ere long.
Lo! from our love, shall rise aright,
Thy sun, thy hope, thy joy, thy light,
And higher, once, more full and strong,
Shall ring Our Country’s song.
(repeat last four lines)
