" Du gamla Du fria" - Sweden National anthem Vocal

submitted by Marvin's Underground Music Ondemand on 05/04/18 1

Du gamla, Du fria ("Thou ancient, Thou free") is the de facto national anthem of Sweden. It was originally named Sång till Norden ("Song to the Nordic"), and the first words of its lyrics has just been assumed also to be the title over the years. Although the Swedish constitution makes no mention of a national anthem, the song enjoys universal recognition and is used, for example, at sporting events. It first began to win recognition as a patriotic song in the 1890s, and the issue was debated back and forth up until the 1930s. In 1938, the Swedish public service radio company Sveriges Radio started playing it at the end of transmitting in the evenings, which really marked the beginning of the "almost official" status as national anthem the song has since then. Sweden National Anthem Lyrics Sweden Du Gamla Du Fria Den svensk national sången Observera: Tryck här om du inte hör någon musik! Du gamla, Du fria, Du fjällhöga nord Du tysta, Du glädjerika sköna! Jag hälsar Dig, vänaste land uppå jord, /: Din sol, Din himmel, Dina ängder gröna. :/ Du tronar på minnen från fornstora dar, då ärat Ditt namn flög över jorden. Jag vet att Du är och Du blir vad du var. /: Ja, jag vill leva jag vill dö i Norden. :/ Jag städs vill dig tjäna mitt älskade land, din trohet till döden vill jag svära. Din rätt, skall jag värna, med håg och med hand, /:din fana, högt den bragderika bära. :/ Med Gud skall jag kämpa, för hem och för härd, för Sverige, den kära fosterjorden. Jag byter Dig ej, mot allt i en värld :/ Nej, jag vill leva jag vill dö i Norden. :/ English Translation: Ye free, ancient country Ye high mountained north Ye silent and free and so delightful We greet you as loveliest land upon earth Your shining sun, your sky Your pastures green (repeat previous two lines) You rest on your memories of days great and past When all round the world your name was honoured I know that you'll always remain the way you were In my own Nordic land I'll live forever (repeat previous two lines)
