"Sei gesegnet ohne Ende" (zaɪ̯ ɡəˈzeːɡnət ʔoːnə ˈʔɛndə; English translation: Be Blessed Without End), also known as the ″Kernstock-Hymne″, is a German language song that was the national anthem of Austria from 1929 until 1938. Written by Ottokar Kernstock, it was sung to the famous tune of "Gott erhalte Franz den Kaiser" by Joseph Haydn, better known as the tune of the "Deutschlandlied", which since 1922 has been the national anthem of Germany.History
The first but unofficial anthem of the First Austrian Republic was Deutschösterreich, du herrliches Land ("German-Austria, you Glorious Land"). Written in 1920 by Karl Renner and set to music by Wilhelm Kienzl, the patriotic song was not able to successfully compete against the former imperial anthem and especially the latter's famous tune by Joseph Haydn.In 1929, a new anthem was introduced that was sung to this popular tune and whose text stemmed from Ottokar Kernstock, who had written it in 1920.
