Der er et Yndigt Land

(A Lovely Land is Ours)

Der er et yndigt land,

Det står med brede bøge

Nær salten østerstrand;

Det bugter sig i bakke, dal,

Det hedder gamle Danmark,

Og det er Frejas sal.

A lovely land is ours

With beeches green about her

Encircled by the sea

Her hills and vales are manifold

Her name, of old, is Denmark

And she is Freya’s home

Kong Christian Stod ved Højen Mast

(King Christian Stood by the Lofty Mast)

Listen to “Kong Christian Stod ved Højen Mast”

Original Danish Words

Kong Kristian stod ved højen mast i røg og damp;

Hans værge hamrede så fast,

At Gotens hjelm og hjerne brast.

Da sank hver fjendligt spejl og mast i røg und damp.

„Fly,” skreg de, „fly, hvad flygte kan!

Hvo står for Danmarks Kristian i kamp?”


Denmark National Anthem in English (2):

King Christian stood by the tall mast in smoke and mist;

his sword was hammering so hard,

that the Swedes’ helmets and brains cracked.

Then sank every enemy stern and mast in smoke and mist.

“Flee,” they screamed, “flee as flee can!

Who can stand up to Denmark’s Christian in battle?”
