Onwards to the Fatherland is the Presidential Anthem and National Hymn of West Moravia. The words were written by Benedict Braddock. The music is adapted from the opening chorus of Act II of The Grand Duke, an operetta by Sir Arthur Sullivan, of Gilbert & Sullivan fame.

Lyrics

Onwards to the Fatherland,

Moravia! Moravia!

Forwards in your merry band,

And with the patriotism sound:

Moravia! Moravia!

Praising God as you pass on;

Praising Christ, God's only son;

Singing your refrain anon:

Moravia! Moravia! Moravia! Moravia!
