National Anthems of the European Union

We are going to give you a line from a national anthem belonging to a country in the European Union. (For reasons of political uncertainty, the UK will be left out of this quiz.) The line will be in English translation, because that's the language they make me write the Post in. A word or phrase will be left out. Choose the multiple-choice option to correctly complete the lyric.

Remember: it doesn't have to rhyme, it's in translation.
