El Salmo Suizo o Cántico Suizo (en alemán Schweizerpsalm; en francés Cantique suisse; en italiano Salmo Svizzero; en romanche Psalm svizzer) es el himno nacional de Suiza.
La historia del actual himno nacional suizo data de 1841, cuando el himno fue compuesto por el monje cistercense de la abadía de Wettingen Alberik Zwyssig (1808-1854). Desde entonces el himno fue cantado frecuentemente en eventos nacionales. En 1961 fue admitido provisionalmente, hasta que fue declarado himno oficial de la Confederación el 1 de abril de 1981.

The Swiss Psalm (German: Schweizerpsalm, French: Cantique suisse, Italian: Salmo svizzero, Romansh: Psalm svizzer) is the national anthem of Switzerland. It was composed in 1841, by Alberich Zwyssig (1808--1854). Since then, it has been frequently sung at patriotic events. The Federal Council declined however on numerous occasions to accept the psalm as the official anthem. This was because the council wanted the people to express their say on what they wanted as a national anthem. From 1961 to 1981 it provisionally replaced Rufst Du, mein Vaterland ("When You Call, My Country", French Ô monts indépendants; Italian Ci chiami o patria, Romansh E clomas, tger paeis) the anthem by Johann Rudolf Wyss (1743--1818) which was set to the melody of God Save the Queen. On April 1, 1981, the Swiss Psalm was declared the official Swiss national anthem. In 2013 it was announced that the Swiss Federal Government was planning to change the national anthem.

Der Schweizerpsalm (französisch Cantique suisse, italienisch Salmo svizzero, rätoromanisch Psalm svizzer) ist die Nationalhymne der Schweizerischen Eidgenossenschaft.
Das Lied wurde 1841 von Alberich Zwyssig, einem Zisterziensermönch des Klosters Wettingen, zu einem Text von Leonhard Widmer komponiert. Zwyssig wählte den Messegesang Diligam te Domine (auf Deutsch: «Ich will Dich lieben Herr»), den er 1835 für eine Pfarrinstallations-Feier in der Dorfkirche von Wettingen komponiert hatte, und gab ihm den heute bekannten Namen Schweizerpsalm.
