Translation Needed

And to be frank, I don’t know where to start. I have a hard time imagining any other glorified customs union needing an anthem:
Europe is united now
United may it remain;
Our unity in diversity
May it contribute to world peace.

May there forever reign in Europe
Faith and justice
And freedom of its people
In a greater motherland

Citizens, may Europe flourish,
A great task calls on you.
Golden stars in the sky are
The symbols that shall unite us.
Mother is the new father, I guess.

I think see a great reader participation moment in this. Friends, do please parse!
