Sweden : National Anthem

(Thou Ancient, Thou Free)

Thou ancient, thou free, thou mountainous North
Thou quiet, thou joyful [and] fair!
I greet thee, most beautiful land upon earth,
Thy sun, Thy sky, Thy meadows green.

Thou art enthroned upon memories of great olden days,
When honored thy name flew across the earth,
I know that thou art and will remain what thou wert,
Yes, I want to live I want to die in the North

Additional verses:

I forever want to serve thee, my beloved country,
Loyalty until death I want to swear thee,
Thy right I will protect with mind and with hand,
thy banner, the heroes carry high

With God I shall fight for home and for hearth,
for Sweden, the beloved native soil.
I trade thee not, for anything in a world
No, I want to live, I want to die in the North

You free, ancient country, you high mountained North,
Thou quiet, thou joyful beauty!
I greet you as loveliest land upon earth
Your shining sun, your sky, your pastures green


You rest upon memories of great olden days
When all around the world your name was honoured
I know that you are and will remain the way you were
In my own Nordic land, I'll live forever

Alternative metric translation
Original verses:
1
You free, ancient country, you high mountained North,
Thou quiet, thou joyful beauty!

You rest upon memories of great olden days
When all around the world your name was honoured
I know that you are and will remain the way you were
/:In my own Nordic land, I'll live forever:/
