Norwegian National Anthem Lyrics
Norway



Ja, Vi Elsker Dette Landet

(Yes, We Love This Land)

Original Norwegian Words

Ja, vi elsker dette landet,

som det stiger frem,

furet, værbitt, over vannet,

med de tusen hjem.

Elsker, elsker det og tenker

på vår far og mor

og den saganatt som senker

drømmer på vår jord.

og den saganatt som senker,

senker drømmer på vår jord.


Norske mann I hus og hytte,

takk din store Gud!

Landet ville han beskytte

skjønt det mørkt så ut.

Alt hva fedrene har kjempet,

mødrene har grett,

har den Herre stille lempet,

så vi vant vår rett.

har den Herre stille lempet,

så vi vant, vi vant vår rett.


Ja, vi elsker dette landet,

som det stiger frem,

furet, værbitt, over vannet,

med de tusen hjem.

og som fedres kamp har hevet

det av nød til seir,

også vi, nar det blir krevet,

for dets fred slår leir,

også vi, nar det blir krevet,

for dets fred, dets fred slår leir!



English:

Yes, we love with fond devotion

This our land that looms

Rugged, storm-scared o'er the ocean,

With her thousand homes.

Love her, in our love recalling

Those who gave us birth.

And old tales which night, in falling

Bring as dreams to earth.

And old tales which night, in falling

Bring as dreams, as dreams to earth.


Norse man, whatsoe'er thy station,

Thank thy God, Whose power

Willed and wrought the land's salvation

In her darkest hour.

All our mothers sought with weeping

And our sires in fight,

God has fashioned, in His keeping

Till we gained our right.

God has fashioned, in His keeping

Till we gained, we gained our right.


Yes, we love with fond devotion

This our land that looms

Rugged, storm-scared o'er the ocean,

With her thousand homes.

And, as warrior sires have made her

Wealth and fame increase,

At the call we too will aid her,

Armed to guard her peace.

At the call we too will aid her,

Armed to guard, to guard her peace.
