lyrics

DU GAMLA DU FRIA (CCC)

Två första verserna skrivna av Richard Dybeck
Två sista verserna skrivna av John och Lilou Dübeck

Du gamla, du fria, du fjällhöga Nord
Du tysta, du glädjerika sköna
Jag hälsar dig, vänaste land uppå jord
Din sol, din himmel, dina ängder gröna
Din sol, din himmel, dina ängder gröna

Du tronar på minnen från fornstora dar
Då ärat ditt namn flög över jorden
Jag vet att du är och du blir vad du var
Ja, jag vill leva, jag vill dö i Norden
Ja, jag vill leva, jag vill dö i Norden

Du brann utav elden från flaggan så röd
Som tändes av fiender till Jorden
De dränkte din jord i de egna barnens blod
Men jag vill leva, jag vill dö i Norden
Ja, jag vill leva, jag vill dö i Norden

Men du bär ett namn som historien minns
En flagga för himlen och för solen
Ur askan du stiger valkyria från norr
Ja, jag vill leva, jag vill dö i Norden
Ja, jag vill leva, jag vill dö i Norden

OLD AND FREE
Freestyle English translation by Lilou & John

Two first verses written by Richard Dybeck
Two last verses written by John and Lilou Dübeck

Old and free and mountain high North
Silent and joyful beauty
I salute you, most friendly country on earth
Your sun, your heaven, your pastures green
Your sun, your heaven, your pastures green

Your throne is built on memories from your glorious past
When your name was honored world wide
I know that you are and will be what you were
Yes, I want to live and die in the North
Yes, I want to live and die in the North

You were burned by the fire from the red flag
That was lit by enemies of the Earth
They drowned your soil in the blood of their own children
But I want to live and die in the North
Yes, I want to live and die in the North

But you wear a name that history remembers
A flag for the sky and the sun
From the ashes you rise, valkyrie from the north
Yes, I want to live and die in the North
Yes, I want to live and die in the North
