Sámiid Ædnan


Enkel tone, to små ord: Sámiid Ædnan, samisk jord
Kom som vindpust ifra nord, ifra nord, Sámiid Ædnan

Kan et krav få mjukar form: Sámiid Ædnan, Sameland
Vokste sæ fra bris tel storm, bris tel storm, Sámiid Ædnan

Framførr tinget der dem satt, Sámiid Ædnan, Sámiid Ædnan
Hørtes joiken dag og natt, Sámiid Ædnan

Framførr tinget der dem satt, oj...
Hørtes joiken dag og natt, Sámiid Ædnan

Joik har større kraft enn krutt, Sámiid Ædnan
Førr en joik tar aldri slutt, oh... Sámiid Ædnan

Førr en joik tar aldri slutt, Sámiid Ædnan

Lapland


A simple tune, two small words: Lapland, Sami earth
It came with the wind from north, from north, Lapland

Can a demand get any softer: Lapland, the land of the Sami people
It grew from a breeze to a storm, from a breeze to a storm, Lapland

In front of the parliament where they sat, Lapland, Lapland
The yoik was heard day and night, Lapland

In front of the parliament where they sat, oy...
The yoik was heard day and night, Lapland

Yoik is stronger than gunpowder, Lapland
Because a yoik never ends, oh... Lapland

Because a yoik never ends, Lapland
