Der er et yndigt land
Orig. tekst af Adam Oehlenschlдger
Oversat til engelsk af
Peter Ravn Rasmussen
Der er et yndigt land,
Det stеr med brede bшge
Nжr salten шsterstrand;
Det bugter sig i bakke, dal,
Det hedder gamle Danmark,
Og det er Frejas sal.
Der sad i fordums tid
De harniskklжdte kжmper,
Udhvilede fra strid;
Sе drog de frem til fjenders mйn,
Nu hvile deres bene
Bag hшjens bavtasten.
Det land endnu er skшnt,
Thi blе sig sшen bжlter,
Og lшvet stеr sе grшnt;
Og жdle kvinder, skшnne mш'r,
Og mжnd or raske svende
Bebo de danskes шer.
Hil drot og fжdreland!
Hil hver en danneborger,
Som virker, hvad han kan!
Vort gamle Danmark skal bestе,
Sе lжnge bшgen spejler
Sin top i bшlgen blе.
