National anthem of Micronesia

Patriots of Micronesia

Patriots of Micronesia, also known as Across all Micronesia, is the national anthem of the Federated States of Micronesia. It was adopted in 1991, replacing Preamble, the anthem in use since independence in 1979. The melody is that of the German student song "Ich hab' mich ergeben" (which was also one of the unofficial anthems of West Germany between 1949 and 1952).
