Norwegian
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

Translation
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 joik was heard day and night
Lapland

Joik is stronger than gunpowder
Lapland
Because a yoik never ends
Oh… Lapland

Because a yoik never ends
Lapland
