Slovak National Anthem - Nad Tatrou sa blýska

Nad Tatrou sa blýska
Hromy divo bijú
Zastavme ich, bratia
Veď sa ony stratia
Slováci ožijú
To Slovensko naše
Posiaľ tvrdo spalo
Ale blesky hromu
Vzbudzujú ho k tomu
Aby sa prebralo

Slovak National Anthem

Versions: #1#2#3
Far above the Tatra
lightning bolts are pounding.
These bolts we shall banish,
brothers, they will vanish;
Slovaks are rebounding.
Our Slovakia was,
until now, quiescent.
But the lightning flashing
and the thunder crashing
made it effervescent.
Translation Mine if no other Translation Source is given. Soon as a "Source" field with a weblink appears below, it is not my translation, but taken from another website.
If you have corrections. i will consider them if they are made in a courteous way, including stanza and line, and what it is that needs to be replaced. If you only type one or two words into the comment box, without giving the location, I will simply ignore it.
Another option is you correct the entire song and paste it so I can in turn copypaste it, which is less work for me. You can also take my translation and make your own translation using mine as a basis.
If you start a fight over commas, apostrophes, grammar, syntax, lower and upper case, english dialects that you don't understand cause your english is just too poor, as it has now happened for the last couple weeks constantly. I promise you soon as you start monkeying around and bossing me around with your comments that I can't delete. I will delete the translation instead. and Keep it on my computer where it belongs.
