Danmark!

Lyrics

Der er et yndigt land, det står med brede bøge, nær salten østerstrand, Det bugter sig i bakke, dal, det hedder gamle Danmark, og det er Frejas sal, Der sad i fordums tid, de harniskklædte kæmper, udhvilede fra strid, Så drog de frem til fjenders mén, nu hvile deres bene, bag højens bautasten, Det land endnu er skønt, thi blå sig søen bælter, og løvet står så grønt, Og ædle kvinder, skønne møer, og mænd og raske svende, bebo de danskes øer Hil drot og fædreland, Hil hver en danneborger, som virker, hvad han kan, Vort gamle Danmark skal bestå, så længe bøgen spejler, sin top i bølgen blå...

Composed in 1835

Lyrics

There is a lovely country, It stands with broad beeches, Near the salty eastern beach, It winds itself in hill, valley, it is called old Denmark, And it is Freja's hall, There sat in former times, The armour-suited warriors, Rested from conflict Then they went forward to the enemies' injury, Now their bones are resting, Behind the mound's menhir, That country is still lovely, Because the sea waves so blue frolic, And the foliage stands so green, And noble women, beautiful maidens, And men and brisk swains, Inhabit the Danes' islands, Hail king and fatherland! Hail every a Dane-citizen, Who works, what he can, Our old Denmark shall endure, As long as the beech reflects, Its top in the blue wave...
