Kungss?ngen ("The king's song") is the Swedish royal anthem. It is also known by its first line, Ur svenska hj?rtans djup en g?ng ("Once from the depths of Swedish hearts"). Though sung on such occasions as the state opening of the Riksdag (parliament) and Nobel Prize ceremony, this song is not in fact the Swedish national anthem, which is Du gamla, Du fria.Royal anthem lyrics:Ur svenska hj?rtans djup en g?ngen samf?lld och en enkel s?ng,som g?r till kungen fram!Var honom trofast och hans ?tt,g?r kronan p? hans hj?ssa l?tt,och all din tro till honom s?tt,du folk av frejdad stam!National anthem lyrics:Du gamla, Du fria, Du fj?llh?ga nordDu tysta, Du gl?djerika sk?na!Jag h?lsar Dig, v?naste land upp? jord,Din sol, Din himmel, Dina ?ngder gr?na.Du tronar p? minnen fr?n fornstora dar,d? ?rat Ditt namn fl?g ?ver jorden.Jag vet att Du ?r och Du blir vad Du var.Ja, jag vill leva jag vill d? i Norden.Translation (Royal anthem):From the depth of Swedish hearts,a joint and a simple song,which reaches forth to the King!Be faithful to Him and his House,make the Crown light upon his Head,and all your faith in Him invest,thou, people of high renown.Translation (National anthem):Thou ancient, thou free and mountainous NorthThou quiet, thou joyful beauty!I greet thee, most beautiful land upon earth,Thy sun, Thy sky and meadows green.Thou rest upon memories of great olden days,When honored thy name flew across the world,I know that thou art and will be as thou wert,Yes, I want to live I want to die in the North.Performed by Band of the Royal Guards Regiment.
