Danish National Anthem

The Danish National Anthem

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.
Vort gamle Danmark skal bestå,
så længe bøgen spejler
sin top i bølgen blå,
sin top i bølgen blå.
There is a lovely country
it stands with broad beeches
near the salty eastern beach,
near the salty eastern beach.
It winds itself in hill, valley,
it is called old Denmark
and it is Freja’s hall,
and it is Freja’s hall.
Our old Denmark shall endure,
as long as the beech reflects
its top in the blue wave,
its top in the blue wave.
