Lyrics: ?, gu? vors lands! ?, lands vors gu?! V?r lofum ?itt heilaga, heilaga nafn! ?r s?lkerfum himnanna hn?ta ??r krans ??nir herskarar, t?manna safn. Fyrir ??r er einn dagur sem ??sund ?r, og ??sund ?r dagur, ei meir; eitt eil?f?ar sm?bl?m me? titrandi t?r, sem tilbi?ur gu? sinn og deyr. ?slands ??sund ?r, ?slands ??sund ?r! eitt eil?f?ar sm?bl?m me? titrandi t?r, sem tilbi?ur gu? sinn og deyr. Translation: Oh, God of our country! Oh, our country's God! We worship Thy name in its wonder sublime. The suns of the heavens are set in Thy crown By Thy legions, the ages of time! With Thee is each day as a thousand years, Each thousand of years, but a day, Eternity's flow'r, with its homage of tears, That reverently passes away. Iceland's thousand years, Iceland's thousand years! Eternity's flow'r, with its homage of tears, That reverently passes away. Performed by the Berlin Philharmonic.
