DANISH LYRICS


Der er et yndigt land,
det står med brede bøge
nær salten østerstrand;
nær salten østerstrand;
det bugter sig i bakke, dal,
det hedder gamle Danmark,
og det er Frejas Sal
og det er Frejas Sal

Der sad i fordums tid
de harniskklædte kæmper,
udhvilede fra strid;
udhvilede fra strid;
så drog de frem til fjenders mén
nu hvile deres bene
bag højens bautasten
bag højens bautasten

Det land endnu er skønt,
thi blå sig søen bælter,
og løvet står så grønt;
og løvet står så grønt;
og ædle kvinder, skønne mø'r
og mænd og raske svende
bebo de danskes øer
bebo de danskes øer

Hil drot og fædreland!
Hil hver en danneborger,
som virker, hvad han kan!
som virker, hvad han kan!
Vort gamle Danmark skal bestå,
så længe bøgen spejler
sin top i bølgen blå
sin top i bølgen blå


ENGLISH TRANSLATION

I know a lovely land
With spreading, shady beeches
Near Baltic's salty strand;
Near Baltic's salty strand;
Its hills and valleys gently fall,
Its ancient name is Denmark,
And it is Freya's hall
And it is Freya's hall

There in the ancient days
The armoured vikings rested
Between their bloody frays
Between their bloody frays
Then they went forth the foe to face,
Now found in stone-set barrows,
Their final resting place
Their final resting place

This land is still as fair,
The sea is blue around it,
And peace is cherished there.
And peace is cherished there.
Strong men and noble women still
Uphold their country's honour
With faithfulness and skill
With faithfulness and skill

Praise King and Country with might
Bless every Dane at heart
For serving with no fright
For serving with no fright
The Viking kingdom for Danes is true
With fields and waving beeches
By a sea so blue
By a sea so blue
