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

"Ja, vi elsker dette landet" (help·info) (In English: "Yes, we love this country") is the national anthem of Norway. It is commonly referred to as just "Ja, vi elsker" ("Yes, we love"). The lyrics were written by Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson between 1859 and 1868, and the melody was written by his cousin Rikard Nordraak in 1864. It was first performed publicly on 17 May 1864 in connection with the 50th anniversary of the constitution. Usually only the first and the last two verses are sung. Norway National Anthem Lyrics Norway Ja, Vi Elsker Dette Landet (Yes, We Love This Land) Original Norwegian Words Ja, vi elsker dette landet, som det stiger frem, furet, værbitt, over vannet, med de tusen hjem. Elsker, elsker det og tenker på vår far og mor og den saganatt som senker drømmer på vår jord. og den saganatt som senker, senker drømmer på vår jord. Norske mann I hus og hytte, takk din store Gud! Landet ville han beskytte skjønt det mørkt så ut. Alt hva fedrene har kjempet, mødrene har grett, har den Herre stille lempet, så vi vant vår rett. har den Herre stille lempet, så vi vant, vi vant vår rett. Ja, vi elsker dette landet, som det stiger frem, furet, værbitt, over vannet, med de tusen hjem. og som fedres kamp har hevet det av nød til seir, også vi, nar det blir krevet, for dets fred slår leir, også vi, nar det blir krevet, for dets fred, dets fred slår leir! English Translation: Yes, we love with fond devotion This our land that looms Rugged, storm-scared o'er the ocean, With her thousand homes. Love her, in our love recalling Those who gave us birth. And old tales which night, in falling Bring as dreams to earth. And old tales which night, in falling Bring as dreams, as dreams to earth. Norse man, whatsoe'er thy station, Thank thy God, Whose power Willed and wrought the land's salvation In her darkest hour. All our mothers sought with weeping And our sires in fight, God has fashioned, in His keeping Till we gained our right. God has fashioned, in His keeping Till we gained, we gained our right. Yes, we love with fond devotion This our land that looms Rugged, storm-scared o'er the ocean, With her thousand homes. And, as warrior sires have made her Wealth and fame increase, At the call we too will aid her, Armed to guard her peace. At the call we too will aid her, Armed to guard, to guard her peace.
