Danish National Anthem Lyrics in Danish

1. 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

2. 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

3. 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

4. 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




Danish National Anthem Lyrics Meaning in English

1. 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

2. 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

3. 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

4. Hail King and Fatherland
Hail every Danish person
For doing what he can
For doing what he can
The Viking land for Danes is true
With fields and waving beeches
By a sea so blue
By a sea so blue
