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

Sami Land

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

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

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

In front of the parliament where they sat, oy…
The yoik was heard day and night, Sami Land

Yoik is stronger than gunpowder, Sami Land
Because a yoik never ends, oh… Sami Land

Because a yoik never ends, Sami Land
