Kingdom of Denmark

Post by Hugo Strange » 00:45:26 Thursday, 27 October, 2016



Der er et yndigt land, det står med brede bøge
There is a lovely country, it stands with broad beech-trees
nær salten østerstrand, nær salten østerstrand.
near the salty eastern shore, near the salty eastern shore.
Det bugter sig i bakke, dal, det hedder gamle Danmark,
It bends itself in hill, valley, its called ancient Denmark,
og det er Frejas sal, og det er Frejas sal.
and it is Freya's hall, and it is Freya's hall.

Der sad i fordums tid de harniskklædte kæmper,
There sat in former times the armour-suited warriors,
udhvilede fra strid, udhvilede fra strid.
rested from conflict, rested from conflict.
Så drog de frem til fjenders mén, nu hvile deres bene
Then they went forward to the enemies' injury, now resting are their bones
bag højens bautasten, bag højens bautasten.
behind the mound's menhir, behind the mound's menhir.

Det land endnu er skønt, thi blå sig søen bælter,
That country is still lovely, because the blue sea waves so frolic,
og løvet står så grønt, og løvet står så grønt.
and the foliage stands so green, and the foliage stands so green.
Og ædle kvinder, skønne mø'r, og mænd og raske svende
And noble women, beautiful maidens, and men and brisk swains
bebo de danskes øer, bebo de danskes øer.
inhabit the Danes' islands, inhabit the Danes' islands.

Hil drot og fædreland! Hil hver en danneborger,
Hail king and fatherland! Hail every a Dane-citizen,
som virker, hvad han kan, som virker, hvad han kan!
who works, what he can, who works, what he can!
Vort gamle Danmark skal bestå, så længe bøgen spejler
Our old Denmark shall endure, as long as the beech-tree reflects
sin top i bølgen blå, sin top i bølgen blå.
its top in the blue wave. its top in the blue wave.

Vort gamle Danmark skal bestå, så længe bøgen spejler
Our old Denmark shall endure, as long as the beech-tree reflects
sin top i bølgen blå, sin top i bølgen blå.
its top in the blue wave. its top in the blue wave.
