"Ja, Vi Elsker Dette Landet"

(Yes, We Love This Land of Ours)

 

Ja, vi el-sker det-te lan-det,

(Yes, we love this land of ours,)

 

som det sti-ger frem,

(As with mountain domes,)

 

Fur-ret vaer-bitt o-ver van-net

(Storm lash'd o'er the sea it towers)

 

med de tu-sen hjem,

(With the thousand homes.)

 

El-sker, el-sker det-og ten-ker

(Love it dearly, ever thinking)

 

p� v�r far og mor,

(Of our father and mother;)

 

Og den sa-ga-natt some sen-ker,

(And the land of Saga sinking,)

 

dr�m me p� v�r jord,

(Dreams upon our life,)

 

Og den sa-ga-natt som sen-ker ,

(And the land of Saga sinking,)

 

sen-ker dr�m-me p� v�r jord .

(Sinking dreams upon our life.)
