Norway

NORWAY

Yes, we love this country
Which rises up
Rugged and weathered, above the sea,
With its thousands of homes.
Love it, love it and think
About our mothers and fathers
And the saga of past ages
That send dreams, send dreams to
our earth.
Norsemen, in house and cabin,
Thank your great God!
It was His will to protect the country
Although things looked dark.
While fathers fought
And mothers cried,
Our Lord quietly opened the way
So that we won our right.
Our Lord quietly opened the way
So that we won, we won our right.
Yes, we love this country
Which rises up,
Rugged and weathered, above the sea,
With its thousands of homes.
And as our fathers’ struggle has raised it
From distress to victory,
We also, when called upon,
Will strike a blow for its peace.
We also, when called upon,
Will strike a blow for its peace, its peace.
