    God Save the South was proposed to be the National Anthem of the CSA, although I don't think this was ever made official, so you still can find people claiming Dixie is the anthem, same for the The Bonnie Blue Flag. I love Dixie (as in my signature) and The Bonnie Blue Flag the most. Hearing these brings tears to my eyes. Click on the titles to download the mp3 samples.

    God Save The South (Partway through the song begins)
    God save the South, God save the South,
    Her altars and firesides, God save the South!
    Now that the war is nigh, now that we arm to die,
    Chanting our battle cry, "Freedom or death!"
    Chanting our battle cry, "Freedom or death!"

    God be our shield, at home or afield,
    Stretch Thine arm over us, strengthen and save.
    What tho' they're three to one, forward each sire and son,
    Strike till the war is won, strike to the grave!
    Strike till the war is won, strike to the grave!

    God made the right stronger than might,
    Millions would trample us down in their pride.
    Lay Thou their legions low, roll back the ruthless foe,
    Let the proud spoiler know God's on our side.
    Let the proud spoiler know God's on our side.

    Hark honor's call, summoning all.
    Summoning all of us unto the strife.
    Sons of the South, awake! Strike till the brand shall break,
    Strike for dear Honor's sake, Freedom and Life!
    Strike for dear Honor's sake, Freedom and Life!

    Rebels before, our fathers of yore.
    Rebel's the righteous name Washington bore.
    Why, then, be ours the same, the name that he snatched from shame,
    Making it first in fame, foremost in war.
    Making it first in fame, foremost in war.

    War to the hilt, theirs be the guilt,
    Who fetter the free man to ransom the slave.
    Up then, and undismay'd, sheathe not the battle blade,
    Till the last foe is laid low in the grave!
    Till the last foe is laid low in the grave!

    God save the South, God save the South,
    Dry the dim eyes that now follow our path.
    Still let the light feet rove safe through the orange grove,
    Still keep the land we love safe from Thy wrath.
    Still keep the land we love safe from Thy wrath.

    God save the South, God save the South,
    Her altars and firesides, God save the South!
    For the great war is nigh, and we will win or die,
    Chanting our battle cry, "Freedom or death!"
    Chanting our battle cry, "Freedom or death!"


    Dixie
    I wish I was in the land of cotton,
    Old times there are not forgotten,
    Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie's Land!
    In Dixie's Land where I was born in,
    Early on one frosty morning,
    Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie's Land!

    Then I wish I was in Dixie! Hooray! Hooray!
    In Dixie's Land I'll take my stand, to live and die in Dixie!
    Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie!
    Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie!

    Old Missus married "Will the Weaver";
    William was a gay deceiver!
    Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie's Land!
    But when he put his arm around her,
    Smiled as fierce as a forty-pounder!
    Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie's Land!

    Then I wish I was in Dixie! Hooray! Hooray!
    In Dixie's Land I'll take my stand, to live and die in Dixie!
    Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie!
    Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie!

    His face was sharp as a butcher's cleaver;
    But that did not seem to grieve her!
    Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie's Land!
    Old Missus acted the foolish part
    And died for a man that broke her heart!
    Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie's Land!

    Then I wish I was in Dixie! Hooray! Hooray!
    In Dixie's Land I'll take my stand, to live and die in Dixie!
    Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie!
    Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie!

    Now here's a health to the next old missus
    And all the gals that want to kiss us!
    Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie's Land!
    But if you want to drive away sorrow,
    Come and hear this song tomorrow!
    Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie's Land!

    Then I wish I was in Dixie! Hooray! Hooray!
    In Dixie's Land I'll take my stand, to live and die in Dixie!
    Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie!
    Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie!

    There's buckwheat cakes and Injin batter,
    Makes you fat or a little fatter!
    Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie's Land!
    Then hoe it down and scratch your gravel,
    To Dixie's Land I'm bound to travel!
    Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie's Land!

    Then I wish I was in Dixie! Hooray! Hooray!
    In Dixie's Land I'll take my stand, to live and die in Dixie!
    Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie!
    Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie!


    The Bonnie Blue Flag
    We are a band of brothers and native to the soil
    Fighting for our liberty, with treasure, blood and toil
    And when our rights were threatened, the cry rose near and far
    Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star!

    Hurrah! Hurrah!
    For Southern rights, hurrah!
    Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star.

    As long as the Union was faithful to her trust
    Like friends and brethren, kind were we, and just
    But now, when Northern treachery attempts our rights to mar
    We hoist on high the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star.

    Hurrah! Hurrah!
    For Southern rights, hurrah!
    Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star.

    First gallant South Carolina nobly made the stand
    Then came Alabama and took her by the hand
    Next, quickly Mississippi, Georgia, and Florida
    All raised on high the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star.

    Hurrah! Hurrah!
    For Southern rights, hurrah!
    Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star.

    Ye men of valor gather round the banner of the right
    Texas and fair Louisiana join us in the fight
    Davis, our loved President, and Stephens statesmen are
    Now rally round the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star.

    Hurrah! Hurrah!
    For Southern rights, hurrah!
    Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star.

    And here's to brave Virginia, the Old Dominion State.
    With the young Confederacy at length has linked her fate.
    Impelled by her example, now other States prepare
    To hoist on high the Bonnie Blue flag that bears a single star.

    Hurrah! Hurrah!
    For Southern rights, hurrah!
    Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star.

    Then here's to our Confederacy, strong we are and brave,
    Like patriots of old we'll fight, our heritage to save.
    And rather than submit to shame, to die we would prefer
    So cheer for the Bonnie Blue flag that bears a single star.

    Hurrah! Hurrah!
    For Southern rights, hurrah!
    Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star.

    Then cheer, boys, cheer, raise a joyous shout
    For Arkansas and North Carolina now have both gone out;
    And let another rousing cheer for Tennessee be given
    The single star of the Bonnie Blue Flag has grown to be eleven!


    The Bonnie Blue Flag

    Its only the first two verses that are normally sung.




    Ja vi elsker dette landet
    1. Ja, vi elsker dette landet,
    som det stiger frem,
    furet, værbitt over vannet,
    med de tusen hjem.
    Elsker, elsker det og tenker
    På vår far og mor
    Og den saganatt som senker
    drømmer på vår jord.

    2. Dette landet Harald berget
    med sin kjemperad,
    dette landet Håkon verget
    medens Øyvind kvad;
    Olav på det landet malte
    korset med sitt blod,
    fra dets høye Sverre talte
    Roma midt imot.

    3. Bøndene sine økser brynte
    hvor en hær dro frem,
    Tordenskiold langs kysten lynte,
    så det lystes hjem.
    Kvinner selv stod opp og strede
    som de vare menn;
    andre kunne bare grede,
    men det kom igjen!

    4. Visstnok var vi ikke mange,
    men vi strakk dog til,
    da vi prøvdes noen gange,
    og det stod på spill;
    ti vi heller landet brente
    enn det kom til fall;
    husker bare hva som hendte
    ned på Fredrikshald!

    5. Hårde tider har vi døyet,
    ble til sist forstøtt;
    men i verste nød blåøyet
    frihet ble oss født.
    Det gav faderkraft å bære
    hungersnød og krig,
    det gav døden selv sin ære -
    og det gav forlik.

    6. Fienden sitt våpen kastet,
    opp visiret for,
    vi med undren mot ham hastet,
    ti han var vår bror.
    Drevne frem på stand av skammen
    gikk vi søderpå;
    nu vi står tre brødre sammen,
    og skal sådan stå!

    7. Norske mann i hus og hytte,
    takk din store Gud!
    Landet ville han beskytte,
    skjønt det mørkt så ut.
    Alt hva fedrene har kjempet,
    mødrene har grett,
    har den Herre stille lempet
    så vi vant vår rett.

    8. Ja, vi elsker dette landet,
    som det stiger frem,
    furet, værbitt over vannet,
    med de tusen hjem.
    Og som fedres kamp har hevet
    det av nød og seir,
    også vi, når det blir krevet,
    for dets fred slår leir.

    Bayernhymne - National anthem of the state of Bavaria

    Gott mit dir du Land der Bayern

    1.Gott mit dir, du Land der Bayern,
    Heimaterde, Vaterland!
    Über deinen weiten Gauen
    Walte seine Segenshand!
    Er behüte deine Fluren,
    schirme deiner Städte Bau
    Und erhalte dir die Farben
    seines Himmels, weiß und blau!

    2.Gott mit uns, dem Bayernvolke,
    Wenn wir, unsrer Väter wert,
    Stets in Eintracht und in Frieden
    Bauen unsres Glückes Herd;
    Daß vom Alpenland zum Main
    Jeder Stamm sich fest vertrau'
    Und die Herzen freudig eine
    Unser Banner, weiß und blau!

    3.Gott mit uns und Gott mit allen,
    Die der Menschen heilig Recht
    Treu beschützen und bewahren
    Von Geschlechte zu Geschlecht.
    Frohe Arbeit, frohes Feiern,
    Reiche Ernten jedem Gau,
    Gott mit dir, du Land der Bayern
    Unterm Himmel, weiß und blau!


    English translation

    1.God be with you, land of the Bavarians,
    Native soil, fatherland!
    Over your wide area
    Rule His merciful hand!
    He shall protect your meadows,
    Shield the buildings of your towns
    And preserve for you the colors
    of His Heaven, white and blue!

    2.God be with us, the people of Bavaria,
    that we, worthy of our fathers,
    may in constant harmony and peace
    build our own fortunes!
    That from the Alps to the Main
    Every tribe may trust each other firmly,
    And our hearts joyously may unite
    Our Banner, white and blue!

    3.God be with us and God with all
    who protect the holy law of humans
    Faithfully, and who preserve it
    From generation to generation.
    Happy in work, happy in celebration,
    Rich harvesting in every field.
    God be with you, Land of Bavaria
    Under the heaven, white and blue!


    Bayernhymne

    For me, there is only one German national anthem, Auferstanden aus Ruinen.

    Auferstanden aus Ruinen


    Auferstanden aus Ruinen
    und der Zukunft zugewandt,
    lasst uns Dir zum Guten dienen,
    Deutschland, einig Vaterland.
    Alte Not gilt es zu zwingen,
    und wir zwingen sie vereint,
    denn es muss uns doch gelingen,
    dass die Sonne schön wie nie
    über Deutschland scheint,
    über Deutschland scheint.

    Glück und Friede sei beschieden
    Deutschland, unserm Vaterland.
    Alle Welt sehnt sich nach Frieden,
    reicht den Völkern eure Hand.
    Wenn wir brüderlich uns einen,
    schlagen wir des Volkes Feind.
    Lasst das Licht des Friedens scheinen,
    dass nie eine Mutter mehr
    ihren Sohn beweint,
    ihren Sohn beweint.

    Lasst uns pflügen, lasst uns bauen,
    lernt und schafft wie nie zuvor,
    und der eignen Kraft vertrauend
    steigt ein frei Geschlecht empor.
    Deutsche Jugend, bestes Streben
    unsres Volks in dir vereint,
    wirst du Deutschlands neues Leben.
    Und die Sonne schön wie nie
    über Deutschland scheint,
    über Deutschland scheint.

    English:
    From the ruins risen newly,
    to the future turned, we stand.
    Let us serve your good weal truly,
    Germany, our fatherland!
    Triumph over bygone sorrow,
    can in unity be won.
    For we shall attain a morrow,
    when over our Germany,
    there is radiant sun,
    there is radiant sun!

    May both peace and joy inspire,
    Germany, our fatherland.
    Peace is all the world's desire,
    to the peoples lend your hand!
    In fraternity united,
    we shall crush the people's foe.
    Let all paths by peace be lighted,
    that no mother shall again
    mourn her son in woe,
    mourn her son in woe!

    Let us plough and build our nation,
    learn and work as never yet,
    that a free new generation,
    faith in its own strength beget!
    German youth, for whom the striving
    of our people is at one,
    you are Germany's reviving,
    and over our Germany,
    there is radiant sun,
    there is radiant sun!

    German lyrics praising endeavor spirit, Tapferkeit, and other virtues would be suitable.

    New Zealand's National Anthem, I can't say I'd call it my favourite lyrics wise but it does instil a certain amount of National pride.

    New Zealand National Anthem


    English Version
    God of Nations at Thy feet,
    In the bonds of love we meet,
    Hear our voices, we entreat,
    God defend our free land.
    Guard Pacific's triple star
    From the shafts of strife and war,
    Make her praises heard afar,
    God defend New Zealand.

    Men of every creed and race,
    Gather here before Thy face,
    Asking Thee to bless this place,
    God defend our free land.
    From dissension, envy, hate,
    And corruption guard our state,
    Make our country good and great,
    God defend New Zealand.

    Peace, not war, shall be our boast,
    But, should foes assail our coast,
    Make us then a mighty host,
    God defend our free land.
    Lord of battles in Thy might,
    Put our enemies to flight,
    Let our cause be just and right,
    God defend New Zealand.

    Let our love for Thee increase,
    May Thy blessings never cease,
    Give us plenty, give us peace,
    God defend our free land.
    From dishonour and from shame,
    Guard our country's spotless name,
    Crown her with immortal fame,
    God defend New Zealand.

    May our mountains ever be
    Freedom's ramparts on the sea,
    Make us faithful unto Thee,
    God defend our free land.
    Guide her in the nations' van,
    Preaching love and truth to man,
    Working out Thy glorious plan,
    God defend New Zealand.

    Bah! Good thing we still have two official national anthems. The other being this glorious song

    God Save The Queen


    Still, far too Christian influenced.

    Preußenlied

    Melodie - August Neithardt, 1832?1859


    B. Thiersch, 1830 — Str. 6 Dr F. Th. Schneider — Str. 7 1851 1. Ich bin ein Preuße, kennt ihr meine Farben?
    Die Fahne schwebt mir weiß und schwarz voran!
    Daß für die Freiheit meine Väter starben,
    Das deuten, merkt es, meine Farben an.
    Nie werd' ich bang verzagen,
    Wie jene will ich's wagen
    |: Sei's trüber Tag, sei's heitrer Sonnenschein,
    Ich bin ein Preuße, will ein Preuße sein! :|

    2. Mit Lieb' und Treue nah' ich mich dem Throne,
    Von welchem mild zu mir ein Vater spricht;
    Und wie der Vater treu mit seinem Sohne,
    So steh' ich treu mit ihm und wanke nicht.
    Fest sind der Liebe Bande;
    Heil meinem Vaterlande!
    |: Des Königs Ruf dring in das Herz mir ein:
    Ich bin ein Preuße, will ein Preuße sein! :|

    3. Nicht jeder Tag kann glühn im Sonnenlichte;
    Ein Wölkchen und ein Schauer kommt zur Zeit;
    Drum lese keiner mir es im Gesichte,
    Daß nicht der Wünsche jeder mir gedeiht.
    Wohl tauschten nah und ferne
    Mit mir gar viele gerne;
    |: Ihr Glück ist Trug und ihre Freiheit Schein:
    Ich bin ein Preuße, will ein Preuße sein! :|

    4. Und wenn der böse Sturm mich wild umsauset,
    Die Nacht entbrennet in des Blitzes Glut;
    Hat's doch schon ärger in der Welt gebrauset,
    Und was nicht bebte, war der Preußen Mut.
    Mag Fels und Eiche splittern,
    Ich werde nicht erzittern;
    |: Es stürm' und krach', es blitze wild darein!
    Ich bin ein Preuße, will ein Preuße sein! :|

    5. Wo Lieb' und Treu' sich so den König weihen,
    Wo Fürst und Volk sich reichen so die Hand,
    Da muß des Volkes wahres Glück gedeihen,
    Da blüht und wächst das schöne Vaterland.
    So schwören wir auf's neue
    Dem König Lieb' und Treue!
    |: Fest sei der Bund! Ja schlaget mutig ein!
    Wir sind ja Preußen, laßt uns Preußen sein. :|

    6. Und wir, die wir am Ost- und Nordseestrande,
    Als Wacht gestellt, gestählt von Wog' und Wind,
    Wir, die seit Düppel durch des Blutes Bande
    An Preußens Thron und Volk gekettet sind,
    Wir woll'n nicht rückwärts schauen,
    Nein, vorwärts mit Vertrauen!
    |: Wir rufen laut in alle Welt hinein:
    Auch wir sind Preußen, wollen Preußen sein! :|

    7. Des Preußen Stern soll weithin hell erglänzen,
    Des Preußen Adler schweben wolkenan,
    Des Preußen Fahne frischer Lorbeer kränzen,
    Des Preußen Schwert zum Siege brechen Bahn.
    Und hoch auf Preußens Throne
    Im Glanz von Friedrichs Krone
    |: Beherrsche uns ein König stark und mild,
    Und jedes Preußen Brust sei ihm ein Schild! :|

    I always felt patriotic and proud as a child, when our anthem (Auferstanden aus Ruinen) was played. But unfortunately our politicians banned its lyrics.
