Denmark – Dejlig er jorden

 
 

Danish Version

Dejlig er jorden!
Prægtig er Guds Himmel!
Skøn er sjælenes pilgrimsgang!
Gennem de favre
riger på jorden
går vi til Paradis med sang.

Tider skal komme,
tider skal henrulle,
slægt skal følge slægters gang;
aldrig forstummer
tonen fra Himlen
i sjælens glade pilgrimssang.

Englene sang den
først for markens hyrder;
skønt fra sjæl til sjæl det lød:
Fred over jorden!
Menneske, fryd dig,
os er en evig frelser fød!

English Version

Beautiful is the earth!
Wonderful God’s heaven!
Lovely the path that we walk along!
Souls on the pilgrim way
through earthly kingdoms
we go to Paradise with song.

Ages shall come to be,
ages shall roll by,
each generation succeed the last;
yet shall the heav’nly sound
never fall silent –
the pilgrims’ song is unsurpassed.

Angel choirs sang it
first for watchful shepherds,
full from soul to soul that dawn:
Peace over all the earth!
People, rejoice and sing,
to us is a Redeemer born!
