History that must never be forgotten

Rise up, Magyar, the country calls!
It's 'now or never' what fate befalls....
Shall we live as slaves or free men?
That's the question - choose your 'Amen'!
God of Hungarians,
we swear unto Thee,
We swear unto Thee - that slaves we shall no longer be!
(from Talpra Magyar! Petofi Sandor, Pest, 1848 március 13.)
