Hil dig, Norge
TRANSLATION AND COMMENTS BY DR. ALF LUNDER KNUDSEN
The lyrics for this patriotic song are written by Norwegian poet Per Sivle (1857-1904) and music composed by Rudolph Magnus Forwald (1869-1936). We hail you, Norway, our land, our Fatherland. Your glory is ours, your virtue our sons’ forever. By word and by deed you shall be honored among councils of nations. We hail you, Norway.
Norway, our land, our fathers’ land, we hail you.
You honor is ours, your justice prevails
Your justice will forever prevail.
We hail you, Norway,
