The "Hymn to Liberty" or "Hymn to Freedom" Ýmnos pros tin Eleftherían pronounced is a poem written by Dionýsios Solomós in 1823 that consists of 158 stanzas, which is used as the national anthem of Greece and Cyprus. It was set to music by Nikolaos Mantzaros, and is the longest national anthem in the world by length of text. In 1865, the first three stanzas (and later the first two) officially became the national anthem of Greece and, from 1966, also that of the Republic of Cyprus. English: "I recognize you by the fearsome sharpness, of your sword, I recognize you by your face that violently defines the land(i.e. the land's borders). From the sacred bones, of the Hellenes arisen, and valiant again as you once were, hail, o hail, Liberty !" Greek: "Σε γνωρίζω από την κόψη Του σπαθιού την τρομερή, Σε γνωρίζω από την όψη, Που με βιά μετράει τη γη. Απ’ τα κόκκαλα βγαλμένη Των Ελλήνων τα ιερά, Και σαν πρώτα ανδρειωμένη, Χαίρε, ω χαίρε ελευθεριά !"
