Swedish national anthem "Du gamla, du fria"



You ancient, you free, you mountainous North

You quiet, you joyful beauty!

I greet you, most beautiful land upon earth,

/:Your sun, Your sky, Your meadows green.:/


You throne upon memories of great olden days,

When honored your name flew over the world,

I know that you are and you will be as you were,

/: Yes, I want to live I want to die in the North :/

Richard Dybeck 1844
