Der er et yndigt land

Lyrics - Danish

(Melody by Hans Ernst Krøyer, 1835, Lyrics by Adam Oehlenschläger, 1819)

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

English Translation - There is a lovely land

There is a lovely land
with spreading, shady beech-trees,
Near salty eastern shore
Its hills and valleys gently fall,
its name is ancient Denmark,
And it is Freya’s hall (source)
